    • The exhibition explores how the artist has gone from being a craftsman to a celebrated artist throughout history
    • Often anonymous in ancient times, the artist becomes recognized from the Renaissance, to the point of becoming a hero of novels or a character of legend from the 19th century.
    • About thirty paintings show the evolution of the recognition of the artists, from the appearance of signatures on the works to the self-portraits.
    • "Figure of artist" gives the opportunity to review the greatest painters: Rembrandt, Le Brun, Delacroix?
