"The Tudors" at the Musée du Luxembourg, Paris.
Of all the dynasties that have ascended to the throne of England, the Tudors, who reigned from 1485 until 1603, are certainly amongst the most popular. Behind the stories heavily inspired by their private lives,
these monarchs have deeply marked the history of their kingdom, regardless of political, religious or cultural views. Artists from Italy, Flanders and Germanic courts leant their services to the English court, responding to a new desire for royal representation. And it is within the confines of these influences that original forms of the English Renaissance were developed. This exhibition is the first in France dedicated to this subject.
Until 19th July. B.D
