Here we have a glimpse of the next gallery space. My favourite sculpture in the building is at the far end.
I moved into a side corridor. The Dead Christ On The Cross is an oil painting dating to 1655-60, by Philippe de Champaigne.
Here we have a porcelain sculpture, made under the direction of Louis-Simon Boizot. Marie Antoinette As Minerva was cast by 1780.
Rome From The Villa Madama is the title of this circa 1765 oil painting by Richard Wilson.
Finishing for today, here we have Garden Of An Italian Villa by Hubert Robert, done in 1764.
