Jean-Etienne Liotard
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A stunning exhibition celebrating one of the greatest artists of the 18th century. The work of Jean-Etienne Liotard has rarely been exhibited, and this is the first time it will be comprehensively celebrated in Britain. Liotard enjoyed a long career and his finest portraits display an astonishing hyper-realism, achieved through a combination of incredible, intense observation and remarkable technical skill. In the age of Mozart and Casanova, Liotard was a key international figure whose achievement deserves to be better known.
