Cabinet de dessins Jean Bonna

This autumn Beaux-Arts de Paris unveils part of its collection of more than 40,000 architectural drawings, exhibiting thirty-four watercolors on architectural projects designed during the training of young architects under the Second Empire.

The drawings on display, dated between 1848 and 1867, constitute a veritable visual memory of the academic teaching dispensed to students in the architecture section and provide a mirror for the architectural trends of the second half of the 19th century.

Curated by Emmanuelle Brugerolles.
