Satyr and Nymph


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Clodion, whose career spanned the last decades of the ancien régime through the French Revolution and Napoleon's reign, embraced his era's taste for antiquity. He trained in Paris and also worked in Rome. He was awarded many prizes and frequently exhibited at the Salon. Although Clodion received a number of important commissions for monumental marble sculptures, his fame and popularity rested on his skill at modeling small-scale terracotta groups for private collectors, such as this one. Bacchic subjects were Clodion's specialty.
