The Getty Museum will be hosting the works of one of the most imaginative and fascinating artists of eighteenth-century France, beginning this January!

Edme Bouchardon (1698–1762) 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.

This is an incredible exhibit that you do not want to miss!
