Bust of Jean Racine


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description Boizot is remembered for his decorative sculptures made for members of Louis XVI's court as well as for his realistic portrait busts. In 1779, he presented a bust of the great French dramatist Racine (1639-1699) that was similar to this example to the Comédie-Française in exchange for a lifetime pass to the theater.
