With an exceptional selection of more than fifty drawings from the Morgan's collection, this exhibition investigates the dual interests in classicism and naturalism in drawings during this era in which French-born artists rose to prominence at home and abroad. Practitioners such as Claude Lorrain, Nicolas Poussin, Jacques Callot, Charles Le Brun, and others brought a distinctive approach to the style and subject matter of their drawings, informed by principles of rationalism, a profound respect for classcial antiquity, and an understanding of the natural world elevated by divine order.
