Subject: Gautier's artists at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art
In conjunction with the Théophile Gautier Bicentennial session at MLA, any one interested in 19th-century art can see works at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art by artists who found a place in the columns of Gautier's art criticism.

Included are pieces by Romantic sculptors Feuchère, Barye and Fauveau, paintings by Delacroix and landscapists Aligny, Rousseau and Troyon, as well as Orientalist Gérôme. For museum hours:

"Gautier's Artists at LACMA", a short description of selected works by these artists, will be available at the Gautier Bicentennial session.
