Louis-Léopold Boilly's works on display at the National Gallery

The works of eighteenth century French artist, Louis-Léopold Boilly, are on display at the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square.

'Boilly: Scenes of Parisian Life' exhibition showcases the artist's work from a private collection never before displayed.

The exhibition shows Boilly's daring responses to the dynamic worlds of politics and art that he encountered at the 1700s.

It also highlights his keen powers of observation and wry sense of humour.

The exhibition is on at the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square until May.
