  • Monday 28 January 18h30. Greek sculpture: from the archaic age to the classical period. Between the 6th and the 4th century BC anthropomorphic statuary flourished in the great sanctuaries of Greece. We will discover the evolution through some emblematic works. Monday 18 February 18h30. Roman sculpture: early Christian funerary art. At the end of the 4th and the beginning of the 5th century, during a period of upheaval marked by the adoption of Christianity and ultimately by the fall of the Empire, the art of the sculptors expresses itself mainly through the decoration of luxurious sarcophagi, very numerous in the south-west of Gaul. Monday, March 25 at 6:30 pm Romanesque sculpture: the decoration of the capitals. At once didactic, symbolic and decorative, Romanesque sculpture reflects the culture and modes of thought of the medieval West. The observation of capitals made in the south of Toulouse between the 11th and 12th centuries gives us some keys. Monday April 15th at 6:30 pm Gothic sculpture: the Marian statues. The end of the Middle Ages corresponds to a development of the cult of the Virgin. Its iconography is greatly enriched, it becomes the favorite subject of sculptors, from the late twelfth century to the fifteenth century. Work in progress is a new model. Monday May 20th at 6:30 pm Modern times: Renaissance and Mannerism. The art of sculptors is expressed in the sixteenth century with a variety and unprecedented wealth. From Donatello to Jean de Bologna, art oscillates between serene balance and dramatic tension. Monday, June 24 at 6:30 pm Sculpture in France in the nineteenth century: From Neoclassicism to the time of Impressionism. After having returned, more than at any other time with Antiquity, the sculpture finally emancipates it to marry the multiple artistic currents (Romanticism, Naturalism, Symbolism ...) which mark the contemporary time.
