"Hubert Robert, a visionary painter" at the Louvre
The Louvre is paying tribute to one of the most brilliant craftmen of his generation, leading artist with a visionary talent. Much more than the painter of ruins and landscapes whose descendants kept the picture, Hubert Robert was one of the greatest creators of poetic imagination of the eighteenth century. This artist at work at once eclectic and deeply cohesive embraced the distinct genres of poetic landscape, urban and architectural whims, archaeological studies and undertook achievements, remarkable and innovative in the area of landscaped gardens or palatial decorations.
