Gift of R. Thornton Wilson, in memory of Florence Ellsworth Wilson, 1943
Not on view
This figure group must have been one of the earliest produced at Vincennes, and the technical difficulties encountered are obvious. The thickness of the porcelain has caused the seated figures to sag and cracks to appear in the base. The composition of the group derives from a print made after François Lemoyne's painting of Hercules and Omphale of 1724.
