Paris, France — It is a fine journey into juxtapositions that is being played out in the Cabinet des Dessins (Drawing Collections) of the Beaux-Arts de Paris (The National School of Fine Arts ) which sits on the banks of the Seine. French contemporary artist Eva Jospin –internationally known for her sculptures that depict forests — is exhibiting for the first time a dozen graphic works revolving around some of her favorite themes like forests, gardens and grottos in India ink. Eva Jospin is the latest artist to be invited to exhibit in the exhibition cycle of the Drawing Collections devoted to students who graduated from the School of Fine Arts and have made their mark on the international art scene. The show, entitled Drawings for a Garden, features her carefully executed and detailed works juxtaposed with older works from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries of architects who lived at the French Academy of Rome.

The common thread of the show evokes the Grand Tour, a kind of journey to initiate artists of the 17th and 18th century into beauty and the world by visiting capitals and cultural capitals to contemplate the masterpieces of Antiquity for inspiration. With its some 25,000 works the Drawing Collections of the Beaux-Arts Paris is the largest collection in France after the Louvre. The collection houses works by among others, Leonardo Da Vinci, Raphaël, Rubens, Poussin and Boucher.
