Next March Galerie Michel Descours will be taking part for the first time in the Salon du Dessin at the Palais Brongniart in Paris. We will have the pleasure of showing some forty graphic works spanning the 17th to the 20th century, from the French, Italian and Northern Schools.

Our selection will include two very handsome pieces by François-Marius Granet: a study for a picture in the Pushkin Museum in Moscow showing Jacques Stella painting in a prison in Rome; and an interior view of the Basilica of St Denis in Paris. We will also be exhibiting an anthropomorphic landscape by the Austrian artist Moritz von Schwind and a particularly fine drawing by Théodore Chassériau. Lyon artists will also be in the spotlight: Louis Janmot; Jean-Jacques de Boissieu, who worked extensively in Germany, where he was collected in his lifetime; and Hippolyte Flandrin, represented by two studies for the decoration of the church of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. One of the high points of our presentation will be a black and red chalk drawing by the very rare Semplice da Verona.
