Rocky Landscape with Figures

Augustin Pajou French

Not on view

This sheet was made by the French sculptor Augustin Pajou while he was a pensionnaire at the French Academy in Rome between 1752 and 1756. On the recto, he sketched (or copied?) a rocky landscape with figures. On the verso, he sketched two quick designs for a cartouche with the king’s arms intended for the façade of the Palazzo Mancini in Rome, home of the French Academy. The cartouche, commissioned in 1753, was never realized.
