For its major 2023 exhibition, the Nantes Museum of Fine Art takes a look at hyperrealist sculpture. This artistic form, little exposed in France since its birth in the United States in the 1960s, has experienced a resurgence of interest since the 1990s.
With more than thirty works by eleven international sculptors, some of which have never been seen before, the Nantes Museum of Fine Art explores the profoundly human and sensitive character of these meticulously realistic sculptures, whose illusion effect is particularly striking. A sensitive experience and an event not to be missed!
The exhibited artists:
Gilles Barbier, Berlinde De Bruyckere, John DeAndrea, Daniel Firman, Duane Hanson, Sam Jinks, Tony Matelli, Saana Murtti, Evan Penny, Marc Sijan, and Tip Toland.
