“In” today, “out” tomorrow and vice versa – that was how trends worked even back in the 19th century. Romanticism, realism and impressionism – with their now famous exponents such as Géricault, Corot, Daumier, Daubigny, Courbet, Manet, Pissarro and Monet – were competing movements on the French painting scene that were vilified by most critics.

Other artists such as Delaroche, Couture, Meissonier, Cabanel, Gérôme and Bouguereau were committed to a more traditional style of painting, but were nevertheless also highly innovative. At the turn of the 20th century, however, they gradually became sidelined. Now it is time to rediscover them.
