French artist Jean-Antoine Houdon (1741-1826) has long been recognized as the greatest European portrait sculptor of the late eighteenth century, flourishing during both the American and French Revolutions as well as during the Directoire and Empire in France. Whether sculpting a head of state, an intellectual, or a young child, Houdon had an uncanny ability to capture the essence of his subject with a characteristic pose or expression. This lavish exhibition catalogue will immediately take its rightful place as the definitive work on Houdon. With more than one hundred color plates and two hundred black and white halftones, Jean-Antoine Houdon: Sculptor of the Enlightenment illustrates every stage of the sculptor's fascinating career, from his early portrayals of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette to his stunning portraits of American patriots such as George Washington, the Marquis de Lafayette, John Paul Jones, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson. Accompanying the images of Houdon's masterworks are four insightful essays that discuss Houdon's views on art (based in part on a newly discovered manuscript written by the artist) as well as his prominence in the highly varied cultures of eighteenth-century France, Germany, and Russia

"On en est encore réduit à des conjectures, mais ce furent peut-être des motifs intellectuels puisque cette loge - une des plus brillantes de l'Ancien Régime - rassemblait une grande partie de l'intelligentsia du moment, en particulier cette noblesse libérale qui s'était associée à son grand combat mené contre l'intolérance. Quoiqu'il en soit, son initiation devint rapidement l'origine du nouveau cours que prenait la maçonnerie puisqu'en le recevant elle accusait réception du Voltairianisme, de sa lutte pour la justice, de son attachement aux droits de l'homme
