Devotion to Drawing: The Karen B. Cohen Collection of Eugène Delacroix - The Met Fifth Avenue

Devotion to Drawing: The Karen B. Cohen Collection of Eugène Delacroix, The Met Fifth Avenue à New York du mercredi 22 août 2018 jusqu'au mercredi 22 août 2018.

Renowned as a giant of French Romantic painting, Eugène Delacroix (179-1863) was equally a dedicated and innovative draftsman. Through a selection of more than one hundred works on paper ranging from finished watercolors to sketchbooks, from copies after old master prints to preparatory drawings for important projects this exhibition explores the central role of drawing in Delacroix's practice.

The exhibition will celebrate a major gift to The Met from Karen B. Cohen, an Honorary Trustee and longtime supporter of the Museum, of her renowned collection of drawings by Delacroix. Assembled with an eye to the artist's process, the collection highlights the ways in which drawing shaped Delacroix's artistic development throughout his career; his application of the medium in the preparation of prints, paintings, and public decorative programs; and his investment in the expressive potential of his materials. As the first North American exhibition devoted to Delacroix's drawings in more than fifty years, it will introduce a new generation to the artist's draftsmanship.

The exhibition is made possible by The Schiff Foundation.

The catalogue is made possible in part by The Peter Jay Sharp Foundation.
