Yan Pei-Ming, A funeral in Shanghai

From October 01, 2019 to January 12, 2020 at the Musée d'Orsay.

When he arrived in France in 1980, Yan Pei-Ming, then twenty years old, immediately went to Paris to discover the works of Gustave Courbet then exhibited at the Louvre. Thirty-nine years later, having become one of the most masterful painters of our time, he was inspired by Un burial à Ornans, a masterpiece of realism, to create Un burial à Shanghai, specially designed for the museum of 'Orsay in celebration of Courbet's 200th anniversary.
