Romantic drawing, from Géricault to Victor Hugo

Le dessin romantique, de Géricault à Victor Hugo

Death, Eros, the Gothic, natural powers or exoticism... Romanticism seized on these themes and explored the mysteries of human life. Through some thirty of its most beautiful sheets, in a variety of techniques such as graphite, pen and watercolour, the tour highlights the richness of Romantic drawing and presents works signed by Géricault, Delacroix, Victor Hugo and Scheffer.
