Jean Mich (1871-1932)

Date(s)

-

Jean Mich (Machtum (L), 1871 - Arcueil (F), 1932), a Luxembourg sculptor known today mainly for his exotic works, will be the subject of a historical exhibition due to open at the MNHA in October 2018. The decorative bust of the Chinese chef Chi-Fan, produced in series, is undoubtedly the most widespread work of this artist to be found in private Luxembourg collections. In his day, however, Jean Mich - who had studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris - was one of the Grand Duchy's principal visual artists, representing Luxembourg several times at exhibitions abroad. He moved to France around 1923 and was largely forgotten in the Grand Duchy after his death. In this exhibition, the MNHA will try to trace the course of this artist's life through many of his known works, historical documents and photographs.

Add to calendar 2018-10-18 00:00:00 2019-03-31 00:00:00 Jean Mich (1871-1932) Le sculpteur luxembourgeois Jean Mich (Machtum (L), 1871 - Arcueil (F), 1932) est connu aujourd'hui principalement pour ses réalisations exotiques. Le buste du cuisinier chinois Chi-Fan, produit en série, est sans doute son oeuvre la plus répandue dans les collections privées luxembourgeoises. À son époque, Jean Mich, formé aux Beaux-Arts à Paris, était pourtant un des principaux artistes plasticiens du Grand-Duché. Parti s'installer définitivement en France vers 1923, il fut largement oublié au Grand-Duché après sa mort. À travers une grande partie de ses oeuvres connues, de documents historiques et de photographies, nous tenterons de retracer le parcours de cet artiste.Vernissage le 17 octobre 2018 à 18 h 30.
