from June 3 to June 5 2022
Art History Festival
Château de Fontainebleau
In 2022, and for the first time, the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature is a partner of the Festival de l’histoire de l’art de Fontainebleau, around the theme “The Animal”. The contemporary era invites us to rethink, through a number of aspects and according to interdisciplinary approaches, the question of the place and condition of animals in the great history of the world. The history of art takes full part in this change and obliges scientists and spectators to rethink the place of the animal in art.
