Louis XVI Style Patinated Bronze and Marble Jardinière after Clodion, circa 1870

About

A Louis XVI style patinated bronze and marble jardinière, cast in relief with Bacchanalian Scenes Of Putti at Play, After Clodion. French, circa 1870. The body of the jardinière or vase depicts a charming scene of putti at play in the manner of Claude Michel Clodion. The putti hold aloft attributes of Bacchus including a wine goblet and a Thysys; one putto is modelled as a fawn. The lower section of the vase is modelled in Sarrancolin marble mounted with acanthus handles and put down on a pedestal and re-entrant plinth base. The jardinière retains its original tin liner. The son-in-law of sculptor Augustin Pajou, Clodion, (Claude Michel), (1738-1814), trained in Paris in the workshops of his uncle and Jean-Baptiste Pigalle, the most successful sculptor of the time. After winning the Prix de Rome, he moved to Italy, sharing a studio with Jean-Antoine Houdon and studying antique, Renaissance, and Baroque sculpture. In 1771 Clodion returned to Paris, where he continued to produce mostly in terracotta. He also worked with his brothers in other media, decorating objects such as candelabra, clocks, and vases. Drawing primarily from pagan antiquity, he created light-hearted terracotta sculptures that epitomised the Rococo style. Late in his life, when neoclassical works were more popular, Clodion adjusted his style and worked on major public monuments in Paris.
