Enjoy the art works of the exhibition in our Online Collection.

Whether poetic love stories or mythological epics, whether atmospheric portrait studies or picturesque ruins — today, the masterpieces of French Baroque art are more enthralling than ever.

70 major works selected from the ALBERTINA Museum‘s rich holdings of drawings sweep visitors into the dreamy and multi-layered cosmos of French art from the Baroque and Rococo periods: the works on display include Nicolas Poussin’s breath-taking free landscape studies as well as Claude Lorrain’s light-drenched depictions of nature, and playful masterpieces by François Boucher and Jean-Honoré Fragonard likewise assume their rightful places here, as do the lovely scenes of Jean-Baptiste Greuze. The crowning conclusion of this showing, which reflects two centuries of French art, is provided by the imposing creations of Jacques Louis David.
