Pierre-Paul Prud’hon

The Dulwich Picture Gallery in London will be joining in the bicentenary commemorations of the Battle of Waterloo this June with Napoleon’s draughtsman: Pierre-Paul Prud’hon. An exceptional talent working in post-revolutionary Paris, Prud’hon caught the attention of Napoleon Bonaparte during his reign as Emperor I. The Dulwich has borrowed 12 works on paper from Gray’s Musée Baron Martin in France, never before seen in the UK. Shown is Prud’hon's superb chalk drawing Male Nude, Arm Extended. The display runs from 23 June to 15 November (CLICK)
