David to Cezanne: Master drawings from the Prat Collection, Paris

This exhibition of 100 drawings offers an in-depth exploration of the development of French art over the course of the 19th century.

The defining movements of neo-classicism, Romanticism, realism and Impressionism are represented through works of outstanding quality by the greatest French draughtsmen: Jacques-Louis David, Jean-Auguste Dominique Ingres, Théodore Géricault, Eugène Delacroix, Jean-François Millet, Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Gustave Moreau, Georges Seurat and Paul Cézanne. The selection also represents a number of artists whose work, though less well-known, is often surprising for its inspiration and originality.

The exhibition comprises landscapes, portraits, figure and composition studies, meticulously finished drawings and quick sketches, all bearing witness to the vitality and richness of the French school of drawing.
