Longines “Painting the races” exhibition
The exhibition takes place at the Salle du Jeu de Paume of the Domaine de Chantilly from June 16th to October 14th.
Longines has inaugurated the exhibition “Painting the races” as its major patron, in presence of His Highness the Aga Khan, President of the Foundation for the Preservation and Development of the Domaine de Chantilly, Walter von Känel, President of Longines, Juan-Carlos Capelli, Vice-President of Longines and Head of International Marketing as well as numerous distinguished guests.
The exhibition “Painting the races” allows the public to discover exceptional artworks from the late 18th century to the late 19th century, around the theme of horseracing. The exhibition features three major artists: George Stubbs, Théodore Géricault and Edgar Degas and is perfectly in line with the values of Tradition, Elegance and Performance dear to Longines. The Swiss watchmaking brand places tradition at the center of its innovation to build its future. The same holds for the artists represented in this exhibition: Degas – contemporary to Longines – created some of the most beautiful masterpieces in the continuity of its predecessors, Stubbs and Géricault. In addition, the Domaine de Chantilly – as well as the races, which are celebrated in this exhibition – illustrate the Elegance, an intrinsic value of the brand. Finally, Performance applies to the artist, the watchmaker, as well as to the horse and the jockey.
