Watteau: The Music Lesson Exhibition, BOZAR, Brussels
Watteau: The Music Lesson Exhibition, BOZAR, Brussels

Nearly thirty years after the last Antoine Watteau retrospective, BOZAR, in collaboration with the Palais des Beaux-Arts de Lille, is organizing an exhibition of this great early eighteenth century French painter. This will be a unique opportunity to rediscover this master along with some of his contemporaries through a hundred or so works, including paintings, drawings, prints and musical instruments. Thanks to the exceptional curatorship of conductor and musician William Christie, and to contemporary artist Michaël Borremans, the exhibition will highlight the multiple and often timeless facets of Watteau’s oeuvre. It will try to convey the echoes between painting and music. More than a monographic exhibition or a musical staging of his work, the Watteau exhibition aims to draw attention to the links connecting the various arts. There is music in Watteau and his contemporaries!

We visited and enjoyed it very much - Watteau was genius. One of the pictures towards the end of the exhibition shows the young Mozart performing at Versailles in May 1766.
