Lauded by Victor Hugo as the Michelangelo of Paris, French sculptor Pierre-Jean David d'Angers produced many of the most iconic portraits and ambitious public monuments of the Romantic era.

This exhibition - the first on the artist outside of his native France - assembles forty-eight works by David on paper and in wax, terracotta, marble, bronze, and plaster, as well as rare nineteenth-century reproductions of his work in photographs and engravings.

The show closes December 8, 2013
