The Musée d'Orsay devotes an exhibition to the Polish painter Józef Mehoffer (Ropczyce, 1869-Wadowice, 1946). The purpose of this exhibition, which is not a retrospective, is to present about thirty paintings, fresco sketches and stained glasses by the artist that belong to the period covered by the Musée d'Orsay. The French public has previously seen only one masterpiece of this stunning artist, The Strange Garden (Warsaw, National Museum), exhibited twice in Paris, at the Galeries Nationales du Grand-Palais, on the occasion of Symbolism in Europe (in 1976) and 1900 (in 2000). This exhibition fits quite naturally the museum policy, which hopes to present the production of foreign artists of the time, a policy inaugurated in 1996 with the exhibition devoted to the German painter Adolph Menzel.
