Making their mark: the shared tastes of two great collectors, the Marquis de Chennevières (1820-1899) and Louis-Antoine Prat
Like Louis-Antoine Prat, Philippe de Chennevières (1820-1899) was a Louvre curator and connoisseur, who assembled a collection of nearly 4000 French drawings covering the period 1500 to 1860. Laurence Lhinares reveals the parallels between these two great collectors, including the 17th to 19th century drawings that bear the collection marks of both Prat and Chennevières.

Louis-Antoine Prat

The art market, drawing cabinets and collectors
Louis-Antoine Prat has been collecting French drawings since 1974. He is a distinguished art historian, based in the Graphic Arts department of the Louvre. He is the author, with Pierre Rosenberg, of catalogues raisonnés of the drawings of Poussin, Watteau and David. Most recently, he has co-curated large retrospectives devoted to Théodore Chassériau (2002) and Ingres (Louvre 2006). He is also vice-president of the Société des Amis du Louvre.
