Scribbling and fine arts

The Palais des Beaux-Arts in Paris offers an exciting journey into the little known practice of doodling among celebrated artists since the Renaissance.

Titled Gribouillage / Scarabocchio : From Leonardo da Vinci to Cy Twombly, the event is already on until April 30th, 2023. It offers « new comparisons » between these artists and many others, such as Michelangelo, Bernini, Jean Dubuffet, Henri Michaux, Helen Levitt, Cy Twombly, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Luigi Pericle.

If you go, bring the kids, or even better, bring grown-ups who think that great artists never scribble, or that abstract painters can only do just that.
