Something to see – Girodet: Romantic Rebel

Endymion.LGirodet: Romantic Rebel
May 24, 2006–August 27, 2006

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 supported by The Isaacson-Draper Foundation.
