This lecture is associated with the 2012 Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition "Napoleon: Revolution to Empire". Sophie Matthiesson, curator and art historian of the French Revolution presents a little-known body of aesthetic artefacts from the French Revolution and examines it, for the first time, in terms of its wider significance. This lecture focuses on a group of highly accomplished clay sculptures modelled by artists imprisoned during the Terror and asks three questions: Who made them? How were they made? Why were they made?
The event is free.
