The J. Paul Getty Museum took its time to deliver an exhibition that could be exhaustive in informing the public on the cultural and artistic impact that the Notre-Dame cathedral had played in European (and therefore international) history. The exhibition “An Enduring Icon: Notre-Dame Cathedral” will be on show within the spaces designed by Richard Meier, in the East Pavilion dedicated to 17th-century Baroque art, including Dutch, French, Flemish, and Spanish paintings and sculpture. It will include paintings, photographs, engravings and rare books.
“The recent fire at Notre-Dame reverberated around the world, with millions of people watching the event unfold live on their screens,” declared Getty Museum’s director Timothy Potts. “We thought it appropriate at this moment to illuminate the artistic and cultural impact that Notre-Dame has played in European history, drawing on the rich holdings of the Museum and the Getty Research Institute.” The exhibition will be on show form July 23 to October 20, 2019.
