EIGHTY OUTSTANDING NINETEENTH-CENTURY FRENCH DRAWINGS FROM THE LOUVRE TO GO ON VIEW FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE U.S. AT THE MORGAN LIBRARY & MUSEUM
This fall The Morgan Library & Museum will host an exhibition of eighty of the Musée du Louvre’s finest drawings by artists working in France from the onset of the Revolution in 1789 through the establishment of the Second Empire in 1852. David, Delacroix, and Revolutionary France: Drawings from the Louvre, which opens Friday, September 23, and runs through December 31, 2011, offers an unprecedented opportunity to experience the mastery of Corot, David, Delacroix, Géricault, Ingres, Prud’hon, and other celebrated artists of the era. The Louvre rarely allows so many major drawings from its famed collection to travel. The Morgan is the sole venue for this exhibition.
