Longines inaugurates the exhibition “Painting the races” as its main patron

Corporate
June 16, 2018
The exhibition “Painting the races”, which takes place at the Salle du Jeu de Paume from June 16th to October 14th, 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 sumptuous 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.

by Longines

Longines’ passion for equestrian sport dates back to 1878, when it produced a chronograph engraved with a jockey and his mount. Three years later, it can be found on American racecourses, adopted by horse enthusia­sts. In 1912, the company partnered for the first time with an international show jumping competition. Today Longines’ involvement in equestrian sports includes show-jumping, flat racing, endurance, driving, dressage and eventing competitions.
