The Louvre museum is hosting an exhibit that sheds light on landscape drawing in the 19th century, focusing particularly on the technique of open-air drawing.

In the 17th century, artists began to practice the art of drawing
outside their studios, then, drawing in the open air gradually expanded in the
next two centuries to become an art philosophy.
Running until January 29th, 2018, the exhibition covers a large selection of works that includes more than one hundred drawings and etchings in addition to about thirty sketchbooks to provide a better understanding of this art and to highlight the main challenges that most of the artists face when painting outside, whith the emphasis been put on light and weather conditions, at the first place.
