Vintage terracotta bathing woman sculpture, titled La Baigneuse, after the work of French artist Etienne Maurice Falconet.
ETIENNE-MAURICE FALCONET (Paris, 1716-1791).
After working as an apprentice carpenter and the fact that his wax figures attracted the attention of the sculptor Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne, he became his disciple. In 1754, Falconet became a member of the Academy of Fine Arts in the French capital and attracted public attention at the Salons of 1755 and 1757 with two marbles which are now in the Louvre. He was appointed director of the sculpture workshop at the Fabrique de Sèvres, where he gave new life to small sculptures in white soft porcelain.
