Exhibition at Cité de la Céramique, Sèvres, 16 September 2015 - 18 janvier 2016

Sèvres sculpture is the result of a meticulous process, starting with a terracotta mould to get bisque porcelain, invented by the Manufacture around 1751, and which immediately became successful. Often devoted to childhood, tales, allegory, literature or everyday-life topics, the bisque porcelain executed under the direction of the king's sculptors Falconet, Pajou, Boizot, sometimes inspired by compositions by Boucher or Coypel, have delighted the most demanding amateurs.
The catalogue surveys the exhibited 80 terracotta and 120 bisques, but also drawings, prints, and original plaster models and moulds. At the end of the book, an illustrated summary catalogue presents all the 18th-century sculptures kept in the Cité de la Céramique.
