||The section of European sculpture includes pieces from the Middle Ages until the nineteenth century. The delicate image of the Virgin and Child, attributed to Jean de Liège, who worked for the French king Charles V, dates from the Middle Ages, while the works attributed to Antonio Rosselino and Andrea della Robbia stand out among the Renaissance collection. The same period is also represented by a significant collection of medals that includes a substantial nucleus of work by Pisanello. Eighteenth-century French sculpture includes work by Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne, Pigalle, Caffieri and Houdon, the artist who produced Diana.
The nineteenth-century’s artistic vision of sculpture is emphasised in the Gulbenkian Collection by the inclusion of work by Carpeaux, Barye, Dalou and Rodin.
