French Portrait Drawings

Yesterday The Courtauld Gallery in Somerset House, London, opened French Portrait Drawings 1600-1850, a free display in Room 12 (CLICK). The centrepiece is Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres’s portrait of his friend and pupil Alphonse Hennet de Goutel, on loan to the Gallery. Drawings from the Courtauld collection trace the development and changing role of portraiture in France from the Renaissance to the mid-nineteenth century, executed in a variety of media on paper. The display runs until 2 September.
