 Join us as Alisa Dupuy portrays Marie Tussaud, a French wax sculptor who founded the famous Madame Tussaud’s Exhibition in London in 1802. As a child, Marie learned to sculpt in the home of Phillipe Curtis in Bern, Switzerland, but during the French Revolution, she was arrested under suspicion of being a Royal Sympathizer. She was released with the stipulation that she create “death masks”- sculpted heads of executed nobles and the King and Queen. Madame Tussaud’s legacy lives on in the work of wax sculptors who create figures of celebrities for her museums around the world. Madame Tussaud’s museums have grown to 24 attractions around the world, including 7 in the United States.
