Poussin, Watteau, Chardin, David…: French Painting in German Collections (17thand 18th Centuries)
PARIS • Galeries nationales du Grand Palais • Ongoing
This show brings together 168 French paintings from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries held in German museums, some of which are known for the size and quality of their French collections. Most of the works are grouped by genre (religious and mythological painting; portraits, landscapes, still lifes…), but one section is devoted to oil sketches and another exclusively to paintings by Nicolas Poussin and Claude Lorrain.
Other French masters featured in the exhibition include Simon Vouet, Valentin, Largillierre, Watteau, Chardin, Boucher, Greuze among others.
