Drawing without reserve - Collections of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs - Exhibition catalogue
The collection of drawings in the Museum of Decorative Arts is one of the richest in the world, yet it is not well known to the general public or specialists alike. It includes nearly 200,000 works, ranging from the 15th to the 21st century and extending as far as Lapland. Its importance and its outlines are the fruit of the singular history of this institution created in 1864 by industrialists, manufacturers, creators and generous collectors.
Sketches by great masters, such as Le Brun. Watteau. Fragonard and Degas, rub shoulders with the drawings of architects and decorators, such as Mallet-Stevens or Chareau, and the productions of cabinetmakers or jewellery and fashion houses. Artists attached to the museum have offered him a selection of their works, occasional for Rodin, large for Dubuffet, or even their entire graphic collection, for Emilio Terry or Jean Royère.
