Eye for the Sensual presents a selection of European paintings and sculptures from the renowned collection of Stewart and Lynda Resnick. While particularly famous for its important eighteenth-century French paintings—including works by François Boucher, Élisabeth-Louise Vigée-Lebrun, Jean-Honoré Fragonard—the Resnick collection also includes a variety of other European works by artists including Peter Paul Rubens, Francesco Guardi and Henri Lehman, as well as a rare religious composition by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. The exhibition also reflects the Resnicks' passion for sculpture, as illustrated with works by Clodion, Jean-Antoine Houdon, and Nicolas-Sébastien Adam, among others.
The exhibition is designed by the world famous stage designer, Pier-Luigi Pizzi, and curated by J. Patrice Marandel, The Robert H. Ahmanson Chief Curator of European Art at LACMA, and Bernard Jazzar, Curator of the Lynda and Stewart Resnick Collection.
This exhibition was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
