Pastels enjoyed a surge in popularity during the 18th century, when artists like Rosalba Carriera and Jean-Etienne Liotard carried the medium to new heights. Presenting works from the Getty collection by these pastellists and their contemporaries, this installation explores the physical properties of pastels and tells the story of their rising renown across 18th-century Europe. Curated by Emily Beeny.
