This catalog sheds new light on Jean-Antoine Houdon, a French sculptor already famous during his lifetime and living in an especially artistic and social era. Representing the Age of Enlightenment, his sculptures present a sensual collection of intellectual penetration by means of representing his protagonists in a sustainable manner. The sculptor Jean-Antoine Houdon (1741-1828) is one of the most prominent French artists of the late 18th Century. Committed to the spirit of the Enlightenment, he devoted himself to serving as an example of the core concern, to finding new forms for old motifs. In particular, he was regarded as the most successful portrait sculptor of his time. The "Frileuse" ("The Shivering Girl"), created by Houdon in 1781, is considered one of the most famous sculptures of the time. She embodies the winter and was designed as a counterpart to the presentation of "Summer." The two sculptures are the focus of this consideration that serve as examples of the paradigmatic change that occurred between art of the Enlightenment and Baroque art. German text.
