Antoine Raspal at the Fragonard Museum

This monographic exhibition devoted to the 19th-century Arlesian painter demonstrates how well he excels in the art of detail. “The representation of the shimmering, printed fabrics is almost photographic,” explains Clément Trouche. This precision also characterizes the jewelry, as heir to a line of goldsmiths Antoine Raspal represents the Arlesian favorites: the Maintenon and Maltese crosses, twisted bracelets decorated with medallions called coulas, and poissarde earrings decorated with precious stones.

Until September 17th 2017 at the Fragonard Museum in Grasse – Then on show at the Réattu Museum in Arles from October 7th 2017 to January 7th 2018.
