Relatively unknown, 19th century polychrome sculpture is one of the key facets of the history of the discipline. Until the beginning of this century, the only colours permitted in statuary were the white of marble and the monochrome patina of bronzes. But the discovery of the use of polychromy in ancient architecture and sculpture changed people’s perspective, as well as generating heated debate.

Once the controversy had died down, colour began to establish its legitimacy of the Second Empire thanks to its decorative character, prevailing under the influence of Symbolism and Art Nouveau as of the 1880s.

The diversity of materials used testifies to the often sophisticated experimentation carried out, which sometimes produced surprising aesthetic results. Painted waxes and marbles, assembled coloured marbles, gold and silver bronzes, pâte de verre and enamelled stoneware became the new language of a new style of French sculpture, illustrating artists’ flair for experimentation at the end of the century. The major challenge in applying colour to sculpture lay in the illusionism of the representation, as demonstrated by the scandal caused by Degas’ Little Dancer Aged FourteenCasual Dress Taylor winter Boutique LOFT Ann YSIEzw. Coloured sculpture would became the preferred medium of Henry Cros, Jean-Léon Gérôme, Louis-Ernest Barrias, Jean-Désiré Ringel d'Illzach, Jean Carriès and Paul Gauguin.

The exhibition presents a selective overview of this very particular aspect of 19th century art through an ensemble of around fifty works from the collections of the Musée d'Orsay.
