The museum’s major show for 2018, ‘Ocean Imaginings: Artists and The Sea – from the 19th century to the present day’, runs from May 5 to September 9 and explores how the sea and ocean have captured the imagination of artists from the late 19th century onwards. The exhibition includes 180 paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, videos, glassware and ceramics by some 100 artists, including major names such as Gustave Moreau, Auguste Rodin, Emile Gallé, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Brassaï and Jean Painlevé, to contemporary artists such as Pierre et Gilles and Elsa Guillaume.
