13 Oct-7 Jan. The French Academy in Rome – Villa Medici presents Eternal Idol, an exhibition comprising paintings, drawings and prints by contemporary American artist Elizabeth Peyton and sculptures by French artist Camille Claudel (1864–1943), one of the greatest sculptors of her time.
The exhibition highlights both artists' distinct approaches to portraiture, displayed alongside several works by Auguste Rodin on the centenary of his death.
Claudel was known for her powerful sculptures, created from materials ranging from plaster to marble to bronze, while Peyton is celebrated for her painted portraits of subjects as diverse as David Bowie, Napoleon and Queen Elizabeth II.
