– This exhibition presents an unusual opportunity to view a selection of 155 nineteenth and early twentieth century drawings chosen by eminent art historian Werner Spies from the Musée d’Orsay’s rich collection of nearly 100,000 works on paper, the vast majority of which are never exhibited publically because of their fragile nature and sensitivity to light. Focusing on representations of dreams, the display presents a panoply of styles from the realistic to the surrealist and the impressionist to the symbolist by a roster of artists that includes Degas, Millet, de Nuncques, Redon, Renoir, Seurat and Spilliaert.

While not intended to be representative of the Orasy’s vast collection which is too complex to be revealed by a single exhibition, this installation is illustrative of the special attraction that drawings hold because they intimately reveal more than any other artistic medium the hand that drew and colored them. Among the most noteworthy examples on view are Jean-François Millet’s, “The Fishermen,” (1858), Georges Seurat’s, “The Black Bow,” (1882), Edgar Degas’s, “The Bathtub,” (1886), Odilon Redon’s, “Joan of Arc,” (1890s) and Léon Spilliaert’s, “Dike at Night,” (1908).
