Ovide dans le Jura Musée National Suisse Prangins

Ovide dans le Jura

Feb 18, 2022 - Oct 30, 2022
Prangins - Exhibition

Around 1795, a wine merchant by the name of Charles-François Robert and his wife gave themselves a sumptuous wallpaper decoration of Ovid's Metamorphoses for their wedding. They installed it on the second floor of their farm La Bise noire, in La Cibourg, not far from La Chaux-de-Fonds!

What does a decor worthy of the Tuileries Palace have to do with a farmhouse in the Bernese Jura? This exhibition examines this exceptional living room from every angle and tells the incredible story of its colorful owner. When wine rhymes with wallpaper and when pastures and contraband go hand in hand!
