The Didier Aaron Gallery is participating in Master Drawings In New York from Saturday January 26 to Saturday February 2, 2013. The gallery will be exhibiting a selection of French and Italian drawings from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century. One of the highlights is the Study for a Satyr, by Michel Dorigny (1616 - 1665), black chalk heightened with white (205 x 265 mm). Whilst in a similar style and using the same technique, this work differs from that of his master, Simon Vouet, in that it is characterised by a greater firmness, more linear precision, and more definition of contours. There also be works by Jean-Baptiste Oudry, François Boucher, Domenico Piola, Carlo Maratta and others.
