Sky Under the Roof...: Drawings for Parisian Ceilings in the Grand Siècle
PARIS  •  Musée du Louvre  •  Ongoing
Through 80 drawings and prints from the museum's holdings and several Parisian collections, the exhibition presents the formal evolution of civil decoration in the French capital over the course of the century, then examines the relationships between drawn projects and engraved repertoires, and concludes with a view of four major undertakings: the Hôtel Lambert, the Mazarin palace, and the Louvre and Tuileries palaces under Louis XIV. It features a mix of quick sketches and more painstaking figure studies; presentation drawings intended for patrons and models for subcontractors or printmakers.
