DESCRIPTION

About 150 works, including sculptures, paintings, and drawings, will be organized around the major projects that Carpeaux undertook during his brief and stormy career. His genius for portraiture will shine particularly, and there will be groupings of drawings and models to trace the evolution of such masterpieces in marble as the Musée d'Orsay's Prince Impérial with the Dog Nero and the Metropolitan Museum's own Ugolino and His Sons.
