11 September - 15 November 2021 Woodstock

Zuleika Gallery is delighted to present Théodore Géricault and Eugène Delacroix: Master Printmakers of the Romantic Era at Blenheim Palace in the Palace Exhibition Suite, found inside the Palace State Rooms, from 11th September until 15th November.

 

This exhibition showcases a series of stunning 19th century equine prints including lithographs and etchings by leading figures of the French Romantic school.

 

Close friends Théodore Géricault and Eugène Delacroix were both pioneering figures in the French Romantic movement. Many of the works in the exhibition showcase the dynamic and impassioned imagery of horses, while Géricault’s lithographs executed after his arrival in London features the new, understated English style the artist adopted in his pursuit of success in the English sporting art market. Both artists are famed for their exquisite draughtsmanship in printmaking.

 

The exhibition explores the traditions of aristocratic and military life, the working horse and the pedigree horse. As well as the equine artworks the exhibition also features a selection of prints of more exotic animals including lions and tigers.

 

This exhibition is the result of a collaboration between Zuleika Gallery and Emanuel von Baeyer, London. For more information please download our press release.
