Portrait bust of the sculptor François Girardon (1628-1715). Girardon initially worked in Paris in the studio of the sculptor François Anguier and later in Rome. In 1652 he returned to France. He came into contact with court painter Charles Le Brun and developed service designs into images. Thanks to their collaboration, Girardon received commissions for sculptures for the castle of Versailles, among others. In 1659 he became a professor at the Académie Royale in Paris, of which he had been a member since 1650. He taught René Frémin, Pierre Granier and Jean-Jacques Clérion, among others. In 1690 he was appointed inspector general of sculptures (inspector general des ouvrages de sculpture). Etching and engraving by Pierre Dupin (1690? -1751). Published in Paris by Michel Odieuvre, c. 1715. Signed in print.
