      Description:
      "Storied Past" presents an in-depth look at French drawing from the collection of the Blanton Museum of Art at the University of Texas, Austin. The exhibition features approximately 55 works dating from the 16th to 19th centuries. Many stages of finish may be seen in the drawing--which range from preliminary sketches to compositional and figure studies to finished work--revealing the medium's versatility. "Storied Past" also conveys major narratives and themes in the art of this period through the works' subjects, which address religion, mythology, and history. In addition, the show provides valuable information about these drawings' status as material objects and about the practices of collecting. Included are French artists from diverse schools and styles, such as Jacques Callot, Fran�ois Boucher, Jean-Baptiste Greuze, Jean-Honor� Fragonard, Th�odore Rousseau, and Th�ophile Alexandre Steinlen. "Storied Past" is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue. A companion exhibition, "French Art from NYU's Collection," will also be on view.
