Marble Sculpture from France

tours seven sculptures representing 250 years of French history, from before the birth of Louis XIV to the Second Empire. Both artistic styles and the sources of patronage changed dramatically during these years. The online exhibit offers an analysis of the social environment of the times and how it influenced subject matter and styles. (National Gallery of Art)
