Little prodigies dating from 18th century, testimonies of the genius of a family of clockmakers.

These three 18th-century humanoid automata are miracles of precision that display an amazing mastery of technology for their period. The Writer, the Draughtsman and the Musician reveal their secrets during public demonstrations at the Museum of Art and History .
