MASTER DRAWINGS FROM SEVE NTEENTH-CENTURY FRANCE FEATURED IN NEW EXHIBI TION AT THE MORGAN
Poussin, Claude, and French Drawing in the Classical Age, a new exhibition opening at the Morgan Library & Museum on June 16, explores the work of some of the most celebrated artists of the time. More than fifty drawings largel y from the Morgan’s collections—including works by Claude Lorrain, Nicolas Poussin, Jacques Callot, and Charles Le Brun—will be on view. Together they demonstrate the era’s distinctive approach to composition and subject matter, informed by principles of rationalism, respect for the art of classical antiqui ty, and by a belief in a natural world governed by divine order. The exhibition runs through October 15.
