This book discusses and catalogues a selection of the finest French drawings from the collection of the National Gallery of Scotland. Ranging in date from the Renaissance to the end of the nineteenth century, it includes major examples by Claude, Poussin, Ingres and Seurat as well as many other fascinating artists from this highly productive national school.
A particular feature of this selection will be aquisitions made over the past twenty-five years, a period which has seen a significant strengthening of the Gallery's drawings collection. This exhibition is the latest in an ongoing series mounted by the Wallace Collection which features selections from celebrated collections of French drawings. The holdings of French paintings in the National Gallery of Scotland are world famous and include magnificent examples by Claude, Poussin, Watteau, Greuze and many of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. Not so well-known, however, is the Gallery s complementary collection of French drawings. Of the more familiar names who have recently entered the collection mention can be made of Poussin, Boucher, Ingres, Corot, Pissarro and Seurat. These acquisitions have been complemented by excellent sheets by lesser-known masters such as Jeaurat, Lancrenon, Hesse and Dulac thereby ensuring a mix of the familiar and less familiar.
