Biography   Augustin Pajou


Augustin Pajou

French sculptor, born on September 19, 1730 in Paris.  At the age of 14 he entered Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne's studio. Then in 1752 he went to Rome to undertake the traditional study period; that year Charles Natoire became the director of the Académie de France in Rome.  Natoire remarked that Pajou did not study the Antique sufficiently, and from the sixty-some sheets of drawings from Pajou's Roman period (now in Princeton) there are few inspired by Greco-Roman antiquity.  One exception is the beautiful drawing with red washes in the Louvre, Diomedes Assailed by the Trojans (1756). One might also mention drawings after Baroque sculptors (Bernini and Puget), and there is even a pure landscape.    ...  Displaying 750 of 8896 characters.
