About 160 works, including sculptures, paintings, and drawings, will be organized around the major projects that Carpeaux undertook during his brief and stormy career. His genius for portraiture will shine particularly, and there will be groupings of drawings and models to trace the evolution of such masterpieces in marble as the Musée d'Orsay's Prince Impérial with the Dog Nero and the Metropolitan Museum's own Ugolino and His Sons.
The exhibition is made possible by the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Foundation.
Additional support is provided by the Gail and Parker Gilbert Fund and the Diane W.
and James E. Burke Fund.
The exhibition was organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Musée d'Orsay.
The catalogue is made possible by the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Foundation and the
Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation, Inc.
