From painterly portrait studies to mythological epics, love stories to picturesque ruins, French art of the baroque and the rococo in the seventeenth century is dazzlingly seductive. This book presents seventy major works of French drawing from the Albertina that highlight the range and power of the period that can be regarded as the golden age of French graphic art. From Nicolas Poussin’s landscape studies to Claude Lorrain’s luminescent portraits of nature to works by Jacques-Louis David’s and Honoré Fragonard, the art gathered here shows why France was such a trendsetter in the period, and why the works its artists created remain extremely popular with art lovers worldwide today.
