Considered during his time as an exceptional artist, Edme Bouchardon became the king’s sculptor and the promoter of the revival in the arts,

“the greatest sculptor and best designer of the century” according to Cochin. The aesthetics of Bouchardon, analyzed as a balance between the ancient reference and fidelity to nature, is beautifully transcribed by his numerous drawings, ardently sought by elite collectors of his time, as well as its earthenware models and sculptures. Artist virtuoso widely sought by the elite, he knew very early also to rely on a strong network of publishers, booksellers and influential fans in Europe to establish his reputation.
