The Male Nude: Eighteenth-Century Drawings From The Paris AcademyOoh la la! The Male Nude is the subject of a free exhibition at the Wallace Collection from October 2013 for which close to forty drawings from the late seventeenth to the late eighteenth centuries have been loaned from France's equivalent of the Royal Academy, the Ecole nationale superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Students at the Academy could only progress to drawing the nude figure after they had mastered all the other skills so this exhibition shows superior studies by artists such as Rigaud, Boucher and Jean-Baptiste Isabey, the leading painter of miniature portraits in early nineteenth-century France. The influence of the all-male Academy was far reaching, producing alumni like Jean-Jacques Bachelier who went on become Director of Design and Decoration at the Sevres porcelain factory, influencing many of the pieces in the Wallace Collection.
