Exposition à Laon : “Regards sur le XVIe à travers les collections laonnoises”


The collections of the Musée d?art et d?archéologie du Pays de Laon, the Bibliothèque Suzanne Martinet de Laon and the Archives départementales de l?Aisne come together to evoke different aspects of a contrasting, tormented yet fascinating century. A century of strawberries, ruffles and puffy tops; a century of Renaissance art, but also of the Wars of Religion, when politics and religion intertwined and exacerbated, plunging the Kingdom of France into endless conflict. A century during which people strove to cast out demons, to seek holiness while cheerfully killing for their faith, right up to the king himself. Through the ups and downs of the time, from Louis XII to Henri IV, a century that saw France emerge from the Middle Ages and enter the modern era.
Without claiming to tell the whole story of this complex and eventful historical period, the exhibition does shed some interesting light on local history, based on previously unpublished documents. An exhibition to help you better understand this colorful era.

See you in the halls of the Musée d?Art et d?Archéologie de Laon! (open to the public Tuesday to Sunday, 1pm to 5pm)
