This exhibition includes a selection of drawings made by Northern artists visiting Italy in the eighteenth century. Some were attracted by the crumbling ruins of well-known ancient buildings like the Colosseum, while others were drawn to more anonymous corners of the verdant countryside. Also on display will be a recently acquired pastel study of a French Dragoon by Anne-Louis Girodet-Trioson (French, 1767-1824) for "The Revolt of Cairo," shown with other military-themed images from the Revolutionary and Napoleonic periods.
Venue Description: Sun.-Thurs., 10am-5:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Recommended admission: $25.
