Synopsis of the exhibition

Discover the largest panorama of the History of Art in the French collections! “Renaissance in the XX7th Century” offers you a unique selection of works from the collections of 64 French museums, presented in virtual reality.

UMA offers you:

  • An exhibition spanning nearly six centuries of Western painting
  • A daring 3D scenography, free from all constraints
  • Eleven themes, from portrait to storyboard; from the landscape to the representation of the body.

The exhibition offers a collection of an exceptional diversity, in a historical and geographical perspective. The issue is not exhaustiveness but the representativeness of the most important eras and schools in the history of art. From the great masters of the Renaissance to the first impressionists, the visitor will be able to discover a panorama of the artistic trends, and appreciate the diversity of French collections.

About the institution

“From the Renaissance to the 20th century, masterpieces of painting in French collections” realized in partnership with the Club-Innovation-Culture, was made possible thanks to the support of the RMN-Grand Palais.

UMA sends its deepest gratitude to Pascal Bonafoux, Professor Emeritus of Art History, for his advice and vision. We would also like to thank the Institut français and the magazine Connaissance des Arts, which carried out several mediation and dissemination operations alongside us. The wealth of its partners allowed UMA to offer an unprecedented and unique exhibition in France.

Finally, we would like to thank Philippine Lambla and Pierre Demerliac for writing the texts that punctuate this exhibition.
