Houdon Anne de Vermenoux X0553, 1475

Shrouded in mystery since its first appearance in the Salon de Paris in 1777,
this sculpture had been confused with a Houdon painting of Baroness de la Houze
by the time it was bought by Henry Huntington in 1927, and it was displayed under
that name until 2003, when the sculpture was loaned to the Getty Museum for an
exhibition of Jean-Antoine Houdon’s work. It was identified by Anne Poulet, who
was the curator for the Houdon exhibition at the Getty and is now director of the
Frick Collection in New York. She recognized it from a sketch in an original
 catalog of the 1777 Salon when she was preparing the exhibition catalog.

The image on the left shows the sculpture on display in a corner of a walkway outside of
the Huntington house, and the right image is from the exhibition at the Getty Museum.
