Cast in Bronze

Taking advantage of the current resurgence of interest in sculpture and a widespread taste for Renaissance and Baroque art, this exhibition brings together a large number of spectacular bronzes that exemplify an art form that has been described as "among the most splendid manifestations of artistic genius in France." It is the first comprehensive exhibition on the art of French bronze sculpture from its beginnings during the Renaissance until the end of the ancient régime. Co-organized by the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Musée du Louvre, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, this exhibition reflects the latest scholarship on the subject. At the same time, it provides a platform for the exploration of 16th- to 18th-century French culture on many levels.
