This exhibition unites for the first time more than 100 oil sketches from the remarkable collections of The Foundation Custodia in Paris, The National Gallery of Art in Washington, and The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, together with a distinguished private collection of sketches, never before seen in public.
Featuring works by noted landscape artists including John Constable, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, J.M.W. Turner, Edgar Degas and Louise-Joséphine Sarazin de Belmont.
Through beautiful projections of the cellular structures of trees, spectacular footage of volcanoes, and mineral, rock and botanical specimens, the exhibition also highlights developments in the earth sciences each seeking, like painters of the time, to reveal ‘truths’ about the world we inhibit.
