Event Description

FEB 7, 2009 – MAY 17, 2009

Experience some of the most sumptuous paintings ever made when the Portland Art Museum and Musée des Beaux-Arts, Tours, bring La volupté du goût: French Painting in the Age of Madame de Pompadour to Portland for its exclusive U.S. presentation.

From the time she attained the envied position of official mistress to Louis XV in 1745 until her death in 1764, Madame de Pompadour was one of the most celebrated and active patrons of the arts. La volupté du gout (voluptuous taste), comprised of paintings created by 24 of the era’s most important artists patronized by Pompadour during an age that witnessed the birth of a public discourse in aesthetics and art criticism, reveals her legacy as the royal tastemaker of the time.

Gathered from 22 international lenders, the works in this exhibition define an era of French peace, prosperity, and aesthetic pleasure for French society through scenes of mythology, literature, religion, landscapes and portraiture.
