Pierre-Paul David d'Angers

Medalist: Victor Peter French

Not on view

This medal is a touching bow to a progenitor of the splendidly gifted sculptor and medalist Victor Peter, as it represents the grandson of the great medalist Pierre-Jean David d’Angers. An example was shown in the Salon of 1881 and the present one looks as fine as that in the Musée d’Orsay.
