This group of works by Ingres, culled from the thousands of drawings the French master bequeathed to his native town of Montauban at his death in 1867, was selected by the French-Israeli artist Avigdor Arikha. The fifty drawings were done in a wide range of media and cover all periods of the artist's long and prolific career. They included landscapes and portraits, as well as figural, drapery and compositional studies. The exhibition traveled from The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston,where it was shown earlier in the year.
