PLACE : PALAIS BRONGNIART - PARIS

EVENT : The 27th EDITION OF THE SALON DU DESSIN

Drawings from the Musée d'arts de Nantes

Renovated and extended after six years of work, the Musée d'arts de Nantes inaugurated in June 2017 has an important collection of drawings from the 18th Century to the present day. From Jacques-Louis David to Odilon Redon, from Jules-Elie Delaunay to Christine Meisner, the collection has more than 13,000 drawings and prints, kept in a new print room. The selection made for this new presentation for the Salon du dessin focuses on the museum’s strengths. Recent acquisitions (J.L. David and Horace Vernet) reinforce the groups collected historically (J.E. Delaunay, Luc-Olivier Merson, Jean Gorin) which have been at the origin of the Collection’s fame. The importance of contemporary art which is sometimes integrated in the new circuit around the museum forming a dialogue with Old Master works, is also evoked here with a group of drawings by Christine Meisner. The dialogue between the periods is thus uninterrupted.
