"Girodet: Romantic Rebel"
2006-05-24 until 2006-08-27
Metropolitan Museum of Art
New York, NY,
This is the first American retrospective devoted to A. L. Girodet-Trioson (1767-1824), a favored but rebellious pupil of Jacques-Louis David. Girodet's idiosyncratic style fuses David's Neoclassical ideal with his own prescient Romantic vision. A selection of approximately 100 paintings and works on paper reflects his originality and the diversity of his works, from mythological subjects to portraits and representations of Napoleon's military triumphs. The exhibition is on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York through August 8, 2006.
The exhibition is supported by The Isaacson-Draper Foundation.
The catalogue is made possible by The Isaacson-Draper Foundation and The Florence Gould Foundation. Additional support for the catalogue has been provided by the Getty Research Institute and the Getty Grant Program.
The exhibition was initiated by the Cleveland Museum of Art and organized by the Musée du Louvre, Paris, and the Reunion des Musees Nationaux, Paris, in collaboration with The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, with the special support of the Musee Girodet, Montargis.
It is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.
