Le Baroque à Rome

From thursday 3 february 2022 to sunday 24 april 2022

Wednesday to Sunday 1pm - 7pm

Cabinet des dessins Jean Bonna

14 rue Bonaparte, 75006 Paris

The Rome of the 17th century is presented through thirty-four sheets selected from the masterpieces of the collection of the Beaux-Arts de Paris. These drawings allow us to measure the importance of the Baroque spirit, around the most important personalities of the century: Bernini, Peter of Cortona, Salvator Rosa or Carlo Maratti.

Once settled and protected by illustrious families, the artists sought to impose their style, which spread thanks to the vitality of their workshops. The exhibition also highlights their students and collaborators, who, like Ciro Ferri or Giuseppe Passeri, proved to be talented draftsmen.

Religious or mythological scenes, landscapes, decorative and architectural projects, preparatory sketches for large-scale decorations or easel paintings, and sheets intended for passionate amateurs, all bear witness to the extraordinary activity of these artists in all fields of creation.


Curator: Emmanuelle Brugerolles
