Jean-Honoré Fragonard, The Inspiration of the Artist

Looking at how artists capture their own creative practice and that of others, this exhibition presents drawings of practitioners at work. It focuses on place, from academies and studios, where details of tools and materials are recorded, to vast landscapes which almost swallow up the painter working within them. Self-portraits are also displayed, exploring their reflection of an artist’s practice and identity.

Featured artists include Lambert Doomer (1624–1700), Jan de Bisschop (1628–1671), Hubert Robert (1733–1808), Carlo Labruzzi (1748–1817), Egon Schiele (1890–1918), George Grosz (1893–1959) and Horst Janssen (1929– 1995).
