The Museum of Jewish Art and History celebrates its 20th anniversary and is organizing a completely new exhibition on Sigmund Freud.

Strangely enough, no exhibition had ever been proposed on the life and work of the great psychoanalyst. “Sigmund Freud. From looking to listening.” brings together, to evoke the extraordinary life of the Viennese, some 200 pieces, paintings, drawings, books, engravings.

Chronological, the scenography reveals the life of the practitioner, first a neurologist in Paris, with this “Clinical lesson at the Salpetrière” by André Bouillet. We discover Charcot, surrounded by students, presenting a young patient in the midst of a hysteria attack, or this strange magnetizing bucket that is scary on the techniques put in place to relieve patients. Then follow meticulous and painful prints, engravings and etchings of young women caught in their torments or the reconstruction of Sigmund Freud’s cabinet, which reveals his keen interest in art, with many sculptures placed in his office.

The Orsay Museum lent Gustave Courbet’s “The Origin of the World” for the occasion, just as we can discover an emblematic and little-known painting by the Belgian surrealist Magritte. These two rooms, which can be contemplated serenely, in a didactic environment and far from the flow of mass tourists are in themselves a reason to see the exhibition.

All these works brought together by art historian Jean Clair, in a successful rhythmic proposal, offer a real and fascinating confrontation of the father of psychoanalysis with the artists inspired by his work and his view of the art he collected himself.
