After Clodion - Sculpture, Famille de Bacchantes - 45 cm - Bronze (patiné) - Début du XXe siècle
France

Beautiful bronze sculpture group of a Bacchant family with signature "Clodion"; made in early 20th century after the example of the famous French artist Claude Michel (1738-1814), known as Clodion.

Clodion was born in Nancy of Anne Adam and Thomas Michel, a not very distinguished sculptor. Anne was the brother of the sculptors Lambert-Sigisbert Adam and Francois Gaspard Adam. In Nancy and probably in Lille, he spent the earlier years of his life. In 1755, he came to Paris and worked at his uncle Lambert-Sigisbert Adam's workshop, an established sculptor. He remained there for four years and when his uncle died he became a pupil of Jean-Baptiste Pigalle. In 1759, he won the Grand Prix of sculpture at the Académie Royale. In 1761, he obtained the first silver medal for studies of models. In 1762, he went to Rome, where he was considerably activity between 1767 and 1771.
