From the time of the French Revolution of 1789 through the reign of King Louis-Philippe and the establishment of the Second Empire in 1852, an incredible concentration of artistic talent brought its collective skill to bear on one of the most turbulent times in French history. This exhibition features some of the greatest examples of works on paper of the period from Paris's famed Musée du Louvre. Included are eighty drawings by such noted artists as David, Prud'hon, Ingres, Géricault, Delacroix, and Corot.
