Revolution under a King: French Prints 1789-92

Revolution under a King: French Prints 1789-92

Date: 11 January - 10 June 2016 | Time: Mon-Fri, 1pm-5pm | Location: UCL Art Museum, South Cloisters, Wilkins Building, University College London, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT | Price: FREE, drop-in | Age group: ALL

UCL Art Museum is pleased to announce the launch of Revolution under a King, an exhibition featuring prints from the early, highly volatile years of the French Revolution, when Louis XVI was still on the throne. The French Revolution marked a watershed in the political role of modern media. The exhibition focuses on an often-overlooked period following the Fall of the Bastille in which the king of France still nominally presided over the dissolution of the old feudal order. A collection of vividly coloured prints capture responses, to astonishing events that turned a society upside down, leaving very few people in Europe untouched. The prints produced in this period, using text and image, had a direct effect on the changing sentiments towards the Revolution as it took place, simplifying political issues of extraordinary complexity.

Curated by Emeritus Professor David Bindman and Dr Richard Taws, in a collaboration between UCL Art Museum and UCL History of Art, the exhibition is also accompanied by a series of talks and events that aim to place this period back into our understanding of the French Revolution.

Based on the award-winning biography Marie Antoinette: The Journey by historian and British author, Lady Antonia Fraser, Marie Antoinette is a sympathetic account of the private life of the last queen of France before the Revolution. The film opens in 1770 when, as a young teenager, Marie Antoinette arrives at Versailles to marry the Dauphine of France, the future Louis XVI. It charts her relationship with Louis and the numerous challenges in their marriage and union. As she becomes more confident, she finds solace in buying lavish gowns and shoes, eating elaborate cakes and pastries, and gambling with her friends at cards. The film is set to a contemporary 21st century sound track and attempts to capture the decadence and luxury of the court of Versailles in the years before the Revolution.

£5 donation suggested, includes popcorn and a glass of wine.

Costume and fancy dress to emulate the decadence and style of the court of Versailles is encouraged. There will be prizes for the best dressed.

This screening is part of the public programme for exhibition Revolution under a King: French Prints 1789-92

Join curators Emeritus Professor David Bindman and Dr Richard Taws from UCL History of Art as they talk about the exhibition Revolution under a King and a selection of prints from these early, highly volatile years of the French Revolution.
