Exhibition “Sculptors as Painters / Painters as Sculptors”
The example of Henry de Triqueti

This special exhibition was organized in partnership with the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Orléans and the Musée Girodet in Montargis.

The Musée des Beaux-Arts in Orléans and the Musée Girodet in Montargis have worked together to present at Fine Arts Paris the rich work of Henry de Triqueti (1803-1874), a painter whose sculptures made him famous.

The two museums, which were bequeathed the contents of the artist’s studio by his daughter, Blanche Lee Childe, will exhibit selected pieces that show how diverse Triqueti’s materials and techniques were, among them line drawing, polychrome, terracotta studies, oil painting, plaster modellos and fine marble.

A typical 19th century artist in terms of the creative abundance of his research, Triqueti freely combined different materials and drawing styles, as did Eugène Devéria and other contemporaries, to illustrate original, appealing aesthetic concepts.
