Notice

 

Patinated bronze representing Mercury or Hermes the messenger god, sitting on a rock, wearing his unique winged hat with a musculature of a young Adonis. Resting on a circular base of black marble. Cast of the nineteenth century from the original by Jean Baptiste Pigalle. Great French sculptor Jean-Baptiste Pigalle was born in Paris in 1714. He works his art very young under the guidance of Robert Le Lorrain and Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne. Convinced that his art is the meaning of his life, he joined Italy in 1734 to perfect his technique. On his return, he began his "Mercury attaching his sandal" (1740), which helped him integrate teh "Beaux Arts". His reputation swells in the heart of the Parisian aristocracy. Madame de Pompadour took him under her wing at the same time as the orders flow. Juggling between the baroque and classical he produced the portrait of Diderot, Voltaire and then carried out the famous funeral monuments for the Maréchal de Saxe (Strasbourg, completed in 1776). He died in Paris in 1785, leaving behind a remarkable achievement.
