Exhibition Masters of European Drawing from the 16th to the 20th Century
from November 26, 2009 to February 22, 2010
The Georges Pébereau Collection
In addition to its many splendid examples of French drawing from the 17th to the 19th century, this collection also includes outstanding works from abroad, notably from Germany, Britain, Denmark and Italy.
This presentation highlights collector Georges Pébereau's remarkable donation of drawings by Costa, Castiglione, Honthorst, Brébiette, Vouet, Tiepolo, Boilly and Victor Hugo to the Louvre's Department of Prints and Drawings.
The result is a marvelous opportunity for a fresh insight into more than four centuries of European drawing.
