Exhibition Programming | Jacques Louis David: Radical Draftsman

Posted in exhibitions, lectures (to attend), museums, online learning by Editor on April 8, 2022

I noted the exhibition in February but included no programming information. Perrin Stein’s introduction is still available to watch on YouTube, and Daniella Berman will focus on a selection of works in her upcoming “Conversations with a Scholar” sessions. Berman will also lead three public tours. CH

Virtual Opening | Jacques Louis David: Radical Draftsman
Online, 28 February 2022 [and still available via YouTube]

Join Perrin Stein, Curator, in the Department of Drawings and Prints, for a virtual tour of Jacques Louis David: Radical Draftsman, the first exhibition devoted to works on paper by the celebrated French artist. David navigated vast artistic and political divides throughout his life—from his birth in Paris in 1748 to his death in exile in Brussels in 1825—and his iconic works captured the aspirations and suffering of a nation, while addressing timeless themes that continue to resonate today. Through the lens of his preparatory studies, the exhibition looks beyond his public successes to chart the moments of inspiration and the progress of ideas. Visitors will follow the artist’s process as he gave form to the neoclassical style and created major canvases that shaped the public’s perceptions of historical events in the years before, during, and after the French Revolution. Organized chronologically, the exhibition features more than eighty drawings and oil sketches—including rarely loaned or newly discovered works—drawn from the collections of The Met and dozens of institutional and private lenders.
