King Lear from The tragedy King Lear is one of William Shakespeare's most acclaimed plays. Many have gone as far as to affirm that it is simply not possible to write a tragedy that surpasses the depth and transcendence that characterise King Lear. It is believed that the play was written at the beginning of the 17th century, most likely between 1603 and 1606. Shakespeare also wrote a theatrical adaptation of this play around 1623. It is likely that Shakespeare drew some inspiration from mythical figures like the Leir of Britain, whose legend was popular as far back as the 8th century. King Lear of Britain is the title character in this tragedy. - The Earl of Gloucester - Edgar, the Earl's son - Edmund, the Earl's illegitimate son - The Dukes of Albany and Cornwall, who are married to King Lear's daughters Regan and Goneril - The King of France, who eventually becomes Cordelia's husband - Fool, a jester in the court of King Lear - The Duke of Burgundy, one of Cordelia's suitors - The Earl of Kent

Musée d'Art Contemporain [mac] | Ville de Marseille Présentation Forte de presque huit cents œuvres, la collection du [MAC] s'appuie sur celle du musée Cantini qui fut scindée en deux lors de la création du [MAC] en 1994. Les Nouveaux Réalistes, qui s'étaient affirmés par leur déclaration commune le 27 octobre 1960, décidant de travailler avec les matériaux nouveaux que la modernité proposait ( affiches, objets de la société de consommation, nouvelles matières : plastiques, néons...) furent choisis pour la rupture que leurs propositions apportaient. Sur cette rupture s'élabora la césure dans les collections marseillaises donnant naissance à celle du [MAC]. La collection du [MAC] rend compte ainsi de l'essentiel de la production de la seconde moitié du XXème siècle et du début du XXIème. Dans le jardin attenant au musée plusieurs œuvres de Jean-Michel Alberola, Julien Blaine, César, Erik Dietman et Fabrice Gygi complètent la présentation. Les musées de Marseille sont porteurs du label "Famille Plus". ERWIN WURM 17 mai – 15 septembre 2019
