The National Museum in Warsaw is hosting the largest exhibition of 18th century French art it has shown to date. The exhibition includes 90 oil paintings and 70 drawings, watercolor and pastel works from the museum's own collection and other Polish public collections. There are also 11 paintings from the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg and three from the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. Works selected for the exhibition are by the most famous artists of the era, including Francois Boucher, Jean-Baptiste Chardin, Jacques-Louis David, Jean-Honore Fragonard, Jean-Baptiste Greuze, Nicolas Lancret, Elisabeth Vigee-Lebrun, Nicolas de Largillierre, Hubert Robert, Claude-Joseph Vernet and Antoine Watteau. A special section of the exhibition consists of paintings by French artists who worked in Poland, including Andre Le Brun, Victor Louis and Jean-Baptiste Pillement.

The organizers aim to present 18th-century art in all its wealth and diversity, from late Baroque and Rococo to Classicism, from historical and religious painting to portraits, landscapes to genre scenes.
