James Pradier was a Swiss-born French sculptor, painter and composer. Although his work often demonstrates an affinity with the Neoclassical movement, his statuettes have a decided Romantic flavour. The Woman Putting on a Stocking is typical of Pradier's exploration of the ‘voyeuristic genre’ with its sensuous and erotic charge. Located in the Green Dressing Room.
