Thanks to the special support of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, the Musée du Louvre is presenting a great exhibition dealing with the art of drawing in the open air.
Started on October 16, 2017, and scheduled to last until January 29, 2018, the exhibition showcases more than one hundred drawings and etchings in addition to about thirty sketchbooks.
Drawing in the open air strongly developed in Europe in the 17th century. One century after that, it became a current practice, and by the 19th century, it expanded to become a cornerstone of the training of young artists.
Through this exhibition, the Louvre examines this once so popular practice and explores its various aspects, particularly, at the beginning of the 19th century.
Masterpieces by major French art figures such as Delacroix are among the pieces on exhibition. So, don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to see nature through the eyes of some of the greatest artists that have ever existed.
