David to Corot

French Drawings in the Fogg Art Museum

Agnes Mongan

Edited by Miriam Stewart

ISBN 9780674193208

Publication date: 06/01/1996

The Harvard University Art Museums hold one of the world’s finest collections of early nineteenth-century drawings; the nearly 500 works reproduced in this catalogue include the most significant groups of drawings outside France by the masters of the age—David, Gericault, Ingres, Delacroix, and Prud’hon. Although familiar to scholars, the collection has never been the subject of a comprehensive catalogue, and many of the drawings are published here for the first time.


  • The Fogg’s holdings of early 19th-century French drawings are a near embarrassment of riches. Along with the Ingres, the Fogg owns the most significant groups of drawings of David, Gericault, Delacroix and Prud’hon outside of France...‘David to Corot: French Drawings in the Fogg Art Museum’ also celebrates the publication of a major catalog of the same name. Thirty years in the making, it is the grand effort of the legendary curator of drawings and former director of the Fogg, Agnes Mongan...[A] landmark.

    —Nancy Stapen, Boston Globe


  • Agnes Mongan, Curator Emeritus of drawings and former director of the Fogg Art Museum, served the Museum for more than forty years until her retirement in 1975. She is the author of numerous publications in the field of French drawings.
