Stouf, Jean-Baptiste (French sculptor, 1742-1826)

Note: Jean-Baptiste Stouf was one of the great sculptors of the 18th century, recognized for his extreme virtuosity in both marble and terracotta. Unlike almost all of his contemporaries, including Houdon and Boizot, Stouf never submitted to the linear intensity of the Empire but instead steadfastly held to a pre-revolutionary style that anticipated the romanticism of the 19th century. His work exudes a natural purity of form and expression that was born of the intellectual climate pioneered by Rousseau and Diderot.
