Curated by Florence Viguier-Dutheil, the exhibition features more than Protected content , including numerous drawings.

The closure for renovation of the Ingres Museum in Montauban, the town that gave birth to painter, has made possible the generous loan: some masterpieces have been brought together by international loans ...

The works come from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, from the Columbus Museum of Art of Ohio, from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, from the Pinacoteca di Brera and from the Gam in Milan.
