Travel Tip: Pop Culture and Cinema in France
Jean-Jacques Rousseau and the Arts

Jean-Jacques Rousseau and the Arts
FRANCE
PARIS  •  Univeristy of Paris Pantheon Sorbonne  •  Ongoing
 
 
To mark the tercentenary of the philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau's birth (1712-1778), more than 150 works and objects dedicated to the philosopher and his image are presented in Paris' Pantheon, a monument where he reposes in the midst of other great men.

This is a two-part exhibition presenting Rousseau and his work (Antiquity, books, music, nature) and Rousseau and his image (portraits, allegories, monuments, lionisation), concluding with an evocation of the Rousseau-Voltaire pairing.

The works are sourced mainly from the BNF in Paris, the British Library in London and the Louvre and Carnavalet museums.
