Houdon
Diane chasseresse

Author(s): Guilhem  Scherf

€ 9.30 tax included

The goddess Diana, slim-figured, bow in hand, steps lightly through a forest of white marble. Cherished by her creator, Jean-Antoine Houdon, who continually returned to her throughout his career, Diana the Huntress is an emblematic figure of the “century of women” in the late 18th century, an exceptional sculpture that remains astoundingly modern to this day.
