"David, Delacroix, and Revolutionary France: Drawings from the Louvre"

The Morgan Library and Museum in New York City recently welcomed "David, Delacroix, and Revolutionary France: Drawings from the Louvre," which will be on display through Dec. 31.
The exhibition highlights a period in French history between the French Revolution in 1789 and King Louis-Philippe's reign in 1852. A turbulent time in French history, its artistic products are equally interesting.
Jacques-Louis David, Theodore Gericault, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Eugene Delacroix and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot are among the artists whose 80 drawings will visit the Morgan Library and Museum.
The Georgia Museum of Art's extensive works on paper in the Ceseri Collection also include drawings by Delacroix and Ingres. If a trip to New York for the exhibition is not in the cards this year, consider touring the Ceseri Collection, which is open to the public by appointment.
