About the event

Including artists such as Rigaud, Boucher, Nattier, Pierre, Carle van Loo, Gros and Jean-Baptiste Isabey, this exhibition, of nearly forty French drawings of male nude figures, all drawn between the late seventeenth and the late eighteenth centuries, is unprecedented in Britain. Set within the context of the Wallace's extraordinary collection of 18th century paintings, furniture and decorative arts, this unique exhibition will not only add a new dimension to the works in the permanent collection, but also reveal the processes and obsession behind drawing and looking at the male form.
