Ancient art

Teracotta allows the sculptor to do study works. The malleable and soft matter authorizes very original works. A selection of 130 small sculptures in terra cotta, done at the turn of the XVIIIth and XIXth centuries in Europe, traces the evolution and the place of this material in artistic creation.
