Caffieri, Jean-Jacques (French sculptor, 1725-1792)

Note: He was famous for creating a series of portrait busts of contemporaries like Madame du Barry and famous dramatists of the past. His habit of making casts from his marble sculptures and giving them to institutions such as the Comedie Francaise was fortuitous because many of his marbles were lost in a fire in 1761. Belonging to the third generation of a family of sculptors and bronzeworkers who had come from Italy in the previous century, he was the younger brother of bronzeworker Philippe. Jean-Jacques won the Prix de Rome in 1748. Back in Paris, he became sculptor to Louis XV and provided ornamental designs for metalwork, notably for the staircase at the Palais-Royal, a famous Parisian royal residence. Contemporaries praised his absolute fidelity to the model's features his ability in making these features come alive. Comment on works: Sculptor
