Neptune and Amphitrite

1740 (completed)
Lead
Bassin de Naptune, Versailles

It was probably an aid to the success of the grand group of Neptune and Amphitrite for the Bassin de Neptune that it should be executed in lead. The huge lead group is all movement and action - Neptune poised as if about to rise and strike with his trident, and the whole rocky platform with its people and animals about to swing forward over the water.
