"Сега се носят тайнствени, прекрасни
сред езерната шир."

- Уилям Йейтс  ”Дивите лебеди в Куул”

The passions of Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux.
The exhibition probes overlooked works to reveal not only the darkness and despair of his troubled existence, but also his cruelty towards his wife. Carpeaux, who was plagued by serious physical maladies and violent mood swings throughout his life, was only 48 when he died. Despite this, he was extraordinarily productive, accomplishing a vast body of work sustained at the highest level of quality.
