The First Exhibition of Drawings by Jean-Baptiste Greuze Opens in May 2002 and is Accompanied by Long-Awaited Catalogue

Greuze the Draftsman, May 14 through August 4, 2002

This touring exhibition is the first devoted exclusively to the drawings of Jean-Baptiste Greuze (1725-1805), the remarkable French eighteenth-century painter and draftsman. Indeed, while countless exhibitions have presented the works of other great French artists such as Watteau, Boucher, and Fragonard, Greuze has been accorded only one comprehensive show of any sort since his death in 1805. Nonetheless, his work has enthralled connoisseurs during and since his lifetime.
