Pierre Cartellier, born on 22 December 1757, was a student of Charles-Antoine Bridan (1730-1805). Cartellier had an unpropitious beginning, having failed at his attempt to win the Prix de Rome and he never went to Italy; this was truly a handicap, especially during the Neoclassical era.
He found employment in the firms of private bronze founders then contributed to the decoration of the Panthéon (1792-93), namely, two reliefs: Strength and Prudence and Love of the Fatherl (showing 500 of 3752 characters).
