From Watteau to David

The Horvitz collection


The Petit Palais presents a compendium of more than 200 18th century French paintings, sculptures, and particularly drawings owned by major American collector Jeffrey Horvitz.

Amassed over a period of three decades, it is the most important private collection of French drawings on the other side of the Atlantic. It features a number of masterpieces from Watteau, Boucher, Fragonard, Greuze, and David, while also providing an overview of all the notable artists of that time period, from Oudry to De Troy, Natoire to Bouchardon, Hubert Robert to Vincent, always at their best. The exhibition is organised around a dozen thematic or monographic sections, offering insight into the creativity of a century bursting with stylistic renewal: from mythological painting to fête galante, nudes to landscapes, rocaille ornaments to the revolutionary period.
