Today, Aaron welcomes Dana Cowen of the Ackland Art Museum to discuss their latest exhibition, “Reform to Restoration: French Drawings from Louis XVI to Louis XVIII.” The exhibit features over 80 drawings from the tumultuous period beginning in 1770 and ending in 1830, with artists looking back to classical Greece and Rome for inspiration. All the pieces are from the Horvitz Collection, the preeminent private collection of French art in the U.S.
Conversation presented by the Ackland Art Museum. “Reform to Restoration” is on display through October 8; visit Ackland.org for more details and information about related events.
