The Triumph of Eros

Etienne-Maurice Falconet - Menacing Cupid (1750s)A few weeks ago I previewed The Triumph of Eros: Art and Seduction in 18th Century France, which is being held in the Hermitage Rooms of London's Somerset House. Recall the artist painting a seal of chastity on the Mrs? I thought you might like to be reminded that this exhibition opened today and continues until 8 April 2007. It includes Falconet's masterpiece Menacing Cupid and some fine examples of Sèvres porcelain.
