From Poussin to Cézanne: Masterpieces of the French Drawing from the Prat Collection
Museo Correr, Venice
From 18 March to 04 June 2017

 

On display at Museo Correr is an outstanding nucleus of 110 highly refined drawings from one of the most important private French collections: the Louis-Antoine and Véronique Prat Collection, which includes all the great masters from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century, from Poussin and Callot to Seurat and Cézanne.

Started over forty years ago, without a doubt the Prat Collection is one of the most important private European collections of ancient drawings. The underlying aim is to illustrate the development of French drawing over a period of time that spans more than three centuries, from Poussin to Cézanne, with a selection of around 230 sheets, 110 of which are on display in the exhibiton.

From the perspective of art history studies, drawing is thus confirmed as one of the highest expressions that an artist can leave behind as testimony of his work. Clear, incisive, full of detail or, vice versa, rapid, impulsive and without inspection or second thoughts, it is the artist’s most intimate ‘diary’, which, thanks to the freedom allowed by this technique, offers the most authentic moods of its creative inspiration owing to its immediacy.
