Biography  
Simon-Louis Boizot


SIMON-LOUIS BOIZOT

The son of painter Antoine Boizot (1704-1782), Simon-Louis Boizot was born in Paris on 9 October 1743.  Under his teacher Michel-Ange Slodtz (1705-1764), Boizot won the Academy's first prize in sculpture in 1762 with The Death of Germanicus.  Right at that time such noble Roman themes were becoming quite popular.  Boizot spent the years 1766-70 at the Académie de France à Rome.  Then he successfully attained the stage of agréé (1771) and executed a well known early work, his marble Cupid (1772; Louvre).  The sculptor gave his adolescent model the familiar and dynamic Baroque pose, characterized by a sharp diagonal.  Zephyr and Flora appeared in the Salon of 1773  ...  Displaying 750 of 4205 characters.
