Detailed description

Sculpture "Bathing Venus", cast

Louis XV gave Madame Dubarry, Pompadour's successor and the favourite of the king, this requested marble original, whiche she placed in her garden. Allegrain, professor and later director of the Académie Royale, created it after years of intensive detailed studies on many models in a graceful late Baroque pose with the first touch of incipient classicism. Critics struggled for words to express their enthusiasm, and in the Salon of 1767, Diderot celebrated the statue as "the most beautiful and perfect female figure of modern times".
Original: Musée du Louvre, Paris. Marble. Christophe-Gabriel Allegrain, 1767.
