Gauffier Room

This collection of paintings is emblematic of European Neoclassical landscape art. It comes mostly from the donation by François-Xavier Fabre in 1825 and the majority of the works were painted in Italy. The Nordic artists such as Hackert, Voogd and French artists Gauffier, Boguet and Michallon are represented. Using sketches from life the painters composed landscape paintings in their studios.
