Boilly - Parisian Chronicles

Published on June 16, 2022

The virtuoso and prolific artist Louis-Léopold Boilly became an enthusiastic chronicler of Paris for sixty years, from one revolution to the dawn of another (1789 and 1848). He is both the portrait painter of Parisians, the painter of urban scenes, the inventor of striking trompe-l'oeil and the author of piquant caricatures.

This monographic exhibition explores the abundant career of Boilly through 130 works that invite viewers to discover the singularity of the artist, his brio, his humor and his inventiveness. It presents several unpublished masterpieces or exhibited for the first time in France.

The exhibition runs until June 26, 2022 at Cognacq-Jay Museum, 8 Rue Elzevir, Paris, France 75003.
