EXHIBITIONS
Antiquity Rediscovered
Innovation and Resistance in the 18th Century
2nd December 2010 -14th February 2011
Louvre, Paris
 
  With this important exhibition - featuring 150 works amongst paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings and decorative arts - the Louvre Museum aims to illustrate the processes of innovation, emulation and even resistance to the classical in eighteenth-century Europe.  

Cod. A181628
  While artists such as Mengs, Batoni, Greuze, Bouchardon, Falconet, Pajou, Piranesi, Robert Adam, Soufflot, Petitot and Chambers dreamed the renewal through the classical, a “neobaroque” trend emerged under the influence of works by Bernini, Pietro da Cortona, Tiepolo, Solimena, Gandolfi, Fragonard, Goya and Wailly. Models of the sixteenth century like Michelangelo, Correggio, Giulio Romano and Jean Goujon inspired a “neomannerist” direction.  
Cod. 0077678
  A more universal language was established in the last quarter of the century and radicalized under the aegis of heroic values. From sculptures to architectural projects, colossal canvases to towering marbles, European society made no secret of its new aspirations as revolutionary unrest began to stir.
