Bountiful Invention: drawings by Gilles-Marie Oppenord (1672-1742) and Juste-Aurèle Meissonnier (1695-1750)

 

An exhibition exploring the work of two of the most innovative draughtsmen and designers of the 18th century: spectacular presentation sheets as well as drawings for workshop use; designs for interiors, fountains and grottoes, both real and fantastical, and an important group of designs for churches and ritual objects.
