Bacchante with chalice and three infants

Joseph-Charles Marin French

Not on view

One of a pair with 1983.185.6. The bases, if not original, are certainly close to it; the base of 1983.185.5 either predates Louis XVI's death in 1793 or was added after the restoration of the Bourbon monarchy in 1815. Marin exhibited comparable groups at the Salons of 1793 and 1795.
