Leopold Museum - Victor Hugo: The Dark Romanticist

The writer Victor Hugo (1802–1885), a figurehead of French Romanticism and homo politicus par excellence, became an institution in his own right already during his lifetime. For decades, this visionary writer also pursued a passion for painting. The comprehensive exhibition at the Graphic Cabinet will include some 80 works on paper by Victor Hugo which will be juxtaposed with works by his pre-modern predecessors such as Alexander Cozens and William Turner.
