On the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the death of François Boucher (1703-1770), the painter associated with French King Louis XV, the exhibition ‘Empire of the Senses’ continues at the museum where the theme of Love in its most audacious form compares the erotic art of Boucher and his contemporaries such as Watteau, Greuze and Fragonard. Around 100 paintings, drawings and engravings drawn from international public and private collections are reunited in the museum by the curators from 19th May until 18th July 2021.
