Jacques Caffieri (French sculptor, 1678-1755)

Note: Born into a family of sculptors and metalworkers, Jacques Caffieri became one of France's most important bronze casters during the reign of Louis XV. As the nephew of Charles Le Brun, the chief designer and painter to Louis XIV, Caffieri had good connections as well as talent and rose quickly, becoming Sculptor, Bronze Caster and Chaser for the King's Palaces. His work was primarily in the Louis XV style; he specialized in subjects such as animals and fantastic beasts, Classical gods and heroes, and genre subjects.
