Felix Ziem

Paintings and Watercolours

from the 2013-02-14 until the 2013-08-04

Félix Ziem (1821-1911) was a French painter in the style of the Barbizon School.

Ziem's works were first exhibited in 1849 in Paris and Ziem remained a regular exhibitor there for many years. He also traveled extensively throughout Europe and in 1860 moved to Montmartre, the artistic quarter of the city of Paris.

An extensive traveller, friend of the Barbizon school of artists, Ziem played a unique part in the 19th century art world. He managed to attract a wide range of patrons through works that conjured up dreams of Venice and Constantinople.

The Petit Palais is presenting a selection of paintings and drawings acquired by the museum. At the end of his life, concerned with his legacy, Ziem had put aside a significant body of worki. The Ziem donation is made up of 171 paintings and watercolours with five additional sketchbooks and one ink drawing. This selection – mainly sketches from Ziem's studio collection – reveals a more intimate aspect of the artist, whose excessive output ultimately compromised his spontaneity.
