Jean Joseph Espercieux (1757-1840)


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This medallion is one of d'Angers' larger sizes. The dark patina is characteristic of his work. There is no foundry mark suggesting that the medallion was produced in the foundry of Eck et Durand, a firm that did not employ a mark. Jean Joseph Espercieux exhibited his works at the Paris Salon from 1793 to 1836. He received commissions from the monarchy and the state and was responsible for a sculpture of Louis XVI in the courtyard of the Palace of Versailles.
Provenance Bruton Gallery, Bruton Antiques, Somerset, England; Thomas B. Brumbaugh, Cottontown, Tennessee, 1980, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 2008, by gift.
