Olivier Cornet Gallery and its artists will be presenting a themed group show for Vue 2016 inspired from the very famous poem ‘Elevation‘ by French poet Charles Baudelaire who in March 1866, 150 years ago, suffered a massive stroke and that year marked the end of his creative genius. He was to die a year later. The poet inspired so many other artists of his generation, poets, musicians and painters like Manet.
