He undoubtedly spent the beginning of his life in Nancy and Lille. In 1755, he entered Paris in the studio of his maternal uncle Lambert Sigisbert Adam, sculptor. He stayed there for four years, then became a pupil of Jean-Baptiste Pigal when his uncle died. He is known for his mythological groups of dancers, nymphs or terracotta bathers. He also performed works of great proportion, notably "Hercules at rest", "the Scamander River", "the Deluge", a bust of Tronchet, etc. He is the author of the "aquatic" decoration of the castle of Digoine. ** Ferdinand Barbedienne (1810-1892) was a French industrialist. He is mainly known for his bronze art reproduction foundry. Son of a modest Norman farmer, he made a first fortune in wallpapers before associating in 1838 with the mechanic Achille Collas (1795-1859), who had just invented a process of reproduction in bronze and smaller. ladder, works of art. In 1839, Barbedienne founded the house where he had most of the statues in European museums reproduced in bronze, small enough to adorn modern interiors. His idea was to democratize art, by making accessible faithful reproductions of masterpieces. The themes chosen are often allegorical, and draw heavily from the ancient repertoire. Even today, it is quite common to find bronzes signed Barbedienne in "bourgeois" homes. He applied his processes to the work of the sculptors of his time (Barye, Fremiet, Mène, etc.) and created many models of bronze furniture, enamels, cloisonné, highs and bas-reliefs in wood etc. Through the publishing contracts he offered them, he contributed to their success by distributing their works. Being childless, it was his nephew and successor, Gustave Leblanc-Barbedienne, who developed the foundry by specializing in monumental bronzes. In France, many monuments to the dead are signed Leblanc-Barbedienne. The quality of the cast, the chasing and the patina, specific to the Barbedienne way, have gradually meant that the founder's signature has gained in importance. Thanks in particular to Ferdinand Barbedienne, the relationship between sculptor and founder has become analogous to the relationship between composer and performer for music. Ferdinand Barbedienne rests in the Père-Lachaise cemetery in Paris Dimensions Dimensions base 15.5 cm by 15.5 cm Height 77.5 cm Reference: 300 272 All photos are on:
