Big reproduction in plaster of the bust of VOLTAIRE  from the work of Houdon " seated Voltaire " on 1781.

The face of the philosopher is represented old, the fleshless face, lips are squeezed and retracted. Nevertheless, its ironic smile, the wrinkling of the eyes observers, the wide forehead  in the meaning wrinkles, translate its biting intelligence.

For all the lovers of the French literature of the 18th century, this bust is the symbol.
