From 8 November 2023 – 26 February 2024 The Louvre is home to an incredible exhibition which delves into the life and works of Claude Gillot.
A draughtsman and printmaker in the last years of the Grand Siècle, Claude Gillot is known for the inventiveness and originality of his works, heralding the freedom of expression and mores of the Regency period (1715–1723).
With his parodies, witchcraft scenes, farces and fairground improvisations, he is an artist known for satire, comedy and performing arts.
His countless drawings, coveted by collectors, nevertheless attest to extensive activity in a broad range of fields: illustration, theatre and opera, costume and interior decoration.
This is simply an unmissable exhibition for any lover of the work of Gillot.
