Ingres at the Morgan

decoration09 Sept. 2011|27 Nov. 2011

The exhibition presents seventeen exceptional drawings and three letters by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780–1867), one of the greatest draftsman and portraitists in French history. The centerpiece is the  graphite and black chalk Odalisque and Slave of 1839, which served as the model for the engraved version of the subject. The epitome of exoticism and orientalism, this exquisite drawing is emblematic of the erotic tales of Arabia that had captured the imagination of 19th century Paris.
