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.
