Boizot, Simon-Louis (French sculptor, 1743-1809)

Note: Louis-Simon Boizot was considered among the most prominent and prolific sculptors of 18th-century France, although he is not as well recognized as his contemporaries Pajou, Falconet, and Clodion. Boizot began his career training under René-Michel Slodtz. He studied at the 'Académie Royale,' Paris, winning the Prix de Rome in 1762. In 1773, he was appointed artistic director of the sculpture studio at the Royal Porcelain Manufactory at Sèvres, a position he held until 1806. Boizot's style was diverse. He began his career working primarily with decorative sculpture and commissions for Fontainebleau and Louveciennes. From 1770 to 1790 Boizot was most productive, working predominantly on portrait busts, small groups, and statuettes. He is best known for his detailed portrait busts of the French royal family, which exhibit a classicism characteristic of his time.
