Vernet to Villon: Nineteenth-Century French Master Drawings from the National Gallery of Art

June 8 – Sept. 2, 2012

Marking the first time Washington, D.C.’s National Gallery of Art has lent an exhibition to Oklahoma, the FJJMA is the sole venue for a new exhibition of drawings and watercolors representing each of the major 19th-century movements: Neo-Classicism, Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. The exhibition includes works by artists such as Ingres, Delacroix, Manet, Degas, Cézanne, Toulouse-Lautrec and others. This exhibition has been made possible by the generous support of the Stuart Family Foundation.
