Bouchardon, Edmé - J. Paul Getty Museum Los Angeles

Edmé Bouchardon: Royal Artist of the Enlightenment
One of the most imaginative and fascinating artists of eighteenth-century France, 

was instrumental in the transition from Rococo to Neoclassicism. Much celebrated in his time as both a sculptor and draftsman, he created some of the best-known images of the age of Louis XV. This major international loan exhibition, developed in partnership with the Louvre, is a testament to the remarkable variety of his oeuvre—copies after the antique, subjects of history and mythology, portraiture, anatomical studies, ornament, fountains, and tombs - and to his masterful techniques in drawings, sculptures, medals, and prints. See his works from 10.01.2017 - 02.04,2017. (Text: Getty Museum)
