In the context of the Fondation Custodia’s active acquisition policy, this exhibition shows a selection of more than a hundred works on paper, which have recently joined the Frits Lugt Collection. These include two enormous and intriguing etchings, hand-colored by the artist and architect Jean Louis Desprez (1743–1804). Alongside graphic arts from the French, Spanish and English schools, the exhibition presents exceptional sheets by Dutch Golden Age artists, such as an intimate self- portrait by the young Samuel van Hoogstraten, corrected by none other than his master Rembrandt – a delight for the eyes. A unique opportunity for visitors to view works that are rarely, or indeed never, exhibited.
More information about the exhibition is available on their website (currently only in French). In addition, they offer an online catalogue of all works that are included in the exhibition.
