The Carroll and Milton Petrie European Sculpture Court features large-scale works from the seventeenth through early twentieth century. Presented chronologically from the east to west sides of the gallery, marble and bronze works, often commissioned for gardens or courtyards, represent many of the major sculptors of France, Italy, and other European countries. This survey ranges from the Italian Baroque of Pietro and Gianlorenzo Bernini and the French Rococo of Jean-Antoine Houdon to the work of the preeminent Neoclassicist Antonio Canova and the innovative Auguste Rodin at the end of the nineteenth century. Part of the Museum's original 1888 south facade forms one of the walls of the court.
