French Architecture in the Age of Jacques-Germain Soufflot

Exhibition, Hall cases, 11 October 1989 to 31 December 1989

Jacques-Germain Soufflot (1713–1780), architect of the Church of Sainte-Geneviève in Paris, later named Le Panthéon, is considered to be one of the pioneers of the Neo-Classical movement in architecture. The exhibition presents a selection of original drawings and rare books, which illustrates some of the major movements in French art and architecture that occurred during Soufflot’s lifetime.
