Flemish and Dutch drawings

31 May 2007 - 30 October 2007

If the collections of Nordic paintings of the musée Fabre are well-known thanks to the legacy of Antoine Valedau in 1836, this exhibition is the occasion to discover the Flemish and Dutch drawings.

The Graphic arts cabinet of the musée Fabre owns a group of Flemish and Dutch drawings of very good quality. Artists from these schools were adept of a naturalism that transpires through the genre scenes and landscapes, and their works were appreciated since 18th Century. From the mannerism of Spranger and Golzius, from the baroque bursts of Rubens to the drawers of Nature, such as Moucheron or Wille, this exhibition in two successive parts shows unpublished and rare sheets from the collections of the museum.
