Get ready to shiver during your visit of the new exhibition " The angel of the odd ", which starts today at the Musée d'Orsay.
Following the first stage of the exhibition at the Städel Museum in Frankfurt, the Musée d’Orsay presents the many different expressions of Dark Romanticism, from Goya and Füssli to Max Ernst and the Expressionist films of the 1920s, through a selection of 200 works that includes paintings, graphic works and films.

The common point between these numerous artists from different artistic periods is that at some point, in their creations they investigated the representation of dark and evil forces, unconscious, and cruelty.

An Italian art historian, Mario Praz, finds in the 30’s the term of " black romanticism " to qualify what became a literary and artistic movement old of two centuries.
Ghosts, witches and vampires, fantasies and madness are the subjects of this genre where painting, cinema and literature correspond each other.
