Monument to Mignard1743
Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris
The engraving shows the monument to Mignard, commissioned in 1735 by the painter's daughter, Madame de Feuquières from Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne II. This tomb survives in a mutilated state in Saint-Roch, Paris, the original monument is known only from the engraving by Lépicié, made in 1743, the year in which the tomb was finished. The monument was executed in a variety of media. The shield and garlands are likely to have been in bronze; the high pyramid was probably of coloured marble, while the figure of Time and the drapery he wields are recorded to have been of lead.
