Delacroix (1798–1863)

Pressemitteilung
In partnership with the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, in spring 2018, the Musée du Louvre will be hosting an exhibition dedicated to the artistic career of Eugène Delacroix. For the first time since the 1963 exhibition celebrating the 100-year anniversary of his death, this event will pool over 180 artworks by the artist, including a large number of paintings: from the young artist’s big hits at the Salon of 1820 up to his final less known and mysterious religious and landscape compositions.

The exhibition will showcase the tensions that formed this artist, striving for individuality while driven by aspirations to follow in the footsteps of 16th- and 17th-century Flemish and Venetian artists. The installations and information provided will provide insight into his long, rife, and diverse career.

Visitors will have the chance to familiarize themselves with this engaging character: infatuated by fame and devoted to his work; curious, critical, and cultivated; and a virtuoso writer, painter, and illustrator.

France Viewed from the Grand Siècle
Drawings by Israël Silvestre (1621–1691)

Pressemitteilung
The Department of Prints and Drawings houses a remarkable collection of works by Israël Silvestre (1621–1691), comprising some hundred drawings, over 400 prints, and eighty-eight copper plates. Specializing in topographical views, Silvestre is one of the 17th century’s most important engravers.

Here his engravings of the Station Churches of Rome, a veduta of the Piazza del Popolo prior to Valadier’s modifications, perspective views of the Château de Versailles, the Pont de Grenoble, and the main roads and sites frequented by French artists all display a consummate mastery of effects ranging from the picturesque to the majestic.

Drawing in the Open Air
Variations in Drawing from Nature in the First Half of the 19th Century

Pressemitteilung
After developing strongly in 17th-century France (and Europe), drawing in the open air, from the motif, became current practice in the 18th. By the 19th century, it was considered a vital part of the training of young artists; constantly evolving, it became a primary aspect of the history of drawing.

The meanings of the expressions “from nature,” “after nature,” “from life,” and “from the motif” fluctuated, vague, covering as much observation and scientific study as study sketches, student exercises, architectural surveys, military drawings, drawing from memory, travel illustrations, or the barest sketch of some fleeting impression. Drawing from nature gradually became viewed as an artwork in its own right, a finished piece with its own justification and purpose.

The exhibition groups over one hundred drawings and etchings, along with around thirty sketchbooks, the ultimate instrument of plein-air drawing.

Power Plays

Pressemitteilung
The Petite Galerie exhibition for 2017–2018 focuses on the connection between art and political power. Governing entails self-presentation as a way of affirming authority, legitimacy, and prestige. Thus art in the hands of patrons becomes a propaganda tool; but it can also be a vehicle for protest and subverting the established order.

Spanning the period from antiquity to the present day, fifty works from the Musée du Louvre, the Musée National du Château de Pau, the Château de Versailles, and the Musée des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris illustrate the evolution of the codes behind the representation of political power.

By providing keys to the observation and explanation of different artworks, the Petite Galerie sets out to make the visit to the museum an enjoyable and enlightening experience. Informative labels and digital touchscreen displays encourage attention to detail and help to establish context. Five themed tours of the Louvre’s permanent collection are also proposed.
