Fragonard at the Musée du Luxembourg

Pen on watercolour paper (perforated on top)

November 2015

I made this drawing on invitation at the Musée du Luxembourg, in Paris, during the exhibition dedicated to Jean-Honoré Fragonard.
A few days after the November 2015 attacks, in a militarised and frightened Paris, I sought an evening of peace in the drawing. Given my state of mind, my drawing was reduced to a single panel, where I represented the works, their sensuality in a context so contrasted with the situation I was in. I wanted to represent in the work also to the other artists present, considering our work, like the works we study, an act of resistance against barbarism and obscurantism.
