Musées dessinés

Christelle Téa
Salon Boucher, Musée Cognacq-Jay

The exhibition « Musées dessinés » gathers over 60 drawings made on the spot by artist Christelle Téa in the 14 museums and sites belonging to the City of Paris.

For a whole season, the young artist graduated from the Paris’ School of Fine Arts immersed herself in the Cognacq-Jay museum to draw its daily life extensively. From one drawing to the other, she delivers a intimate story of the museum where rooms and artworks are equally portrayed.

The exhibition fosters connections between contemporary art and the 18th-century collections from the Cognacq-Jay museum.

Christelle Téa is an independant artist. She works in Paris and draws from life not only portraits but also interiors and landscapes, or all together.
