The Musée des Beaux-Arts in Lyon will be opening their latest exhibition later this month entitled (in english) Hippolyte, Paul, Auguste: The Flandrin, artists and brothers. As the name suggests, the show is dedicated to the Lyon-born brothers and artists Hippolyte (1809-1864), Paul (1811-1902) and Auguste (1804-1842) Flandrin.

According to the exhibition's blurb:

The exhibition aims at presenting a new point of view on the three Flandrin’s works. The museum retains the main collection of their work: it houses about 200 paintings, drawings, engravings, photographs and archive documents, a large amount of which has never been shown nor even published. The collection represents the starting point and the backbone of the exhibition, completed with numerous loans. The exhibition will be organized around seven themed sections combining collectively Hippolyte’s, Paul’s and Auguste’s works: self-portraits and mutual portraits, artistic formation, academies, history painting, landscape painting, portrait, religious decoration. The focus of the exhibition will be centred on some key-questions, in order to understand their working methods and to highlight the mutual influences and creative process of the artists. In the exhibition, the underlying feature will be the constant collaboration amongst the three brothers throughout their works.

The exhibition is scheduled to run from 19th May - 5th September 2021.
