Musée d'Orsay: Masks

The mask has always been an object of fascination for creative artists – a fascination which extends beyond the visual arts. Composers, film directors and writers have all fallen under the spell of imaginary world that the mask creates and conceals at the same time. Concerts, lyric shows, films and lectures (in French) all contribute to an understanding of its impact.
