This vaulted gallery marks the start of the museum's itinerary of modern and contemporary art, housing works from the first half of the 19th century. The paintings reflect the contemporary fashion for dramatic illustrations of literary and historical scenes, and images of heroic suffering. Dramatic works such as these contrasts with sensual, flirtatious scenes reflecting the full diversity of French painting during this period.
