The romantic period saw the flourishing of a genius for drawing on the part of many German artists. In addition to their technical mastery, these contemporaries of Goethe displayed a high degree of creative innovation. The Petit Palais has selected 150 outstanding sheets from the collection in the Weimar Museums. None of them has been exhibited before. They provide a fascinating overview of the golden age of German drawing, whose dazzling, emblematic figures included Füssli, Caspar David Friedrich and Philipp Otto Runge.
