The Academy Exposed: French Figure Studies from the Permanent Collection
The rise of humanism during the Renaissance led to an increased interest in the accurate depiction of the human figure. This focus exhibition presents a selection of académies— so-called because the French government gave a monopoly to teach figure drawing from the live model to the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture—that reflect pedagogical principles, changes in studio practice and technique, and a concomitant evolution in style from about 1600 to 1900.
