HOUDON, Jean-Antoine
(b. 1741, Versailles, d. 1828, Paris)

Mademoiselle Servat

Marble, height 77 cm
Liebighaus, Frankfurt

This work is ambiguously executed. It is in some respects meticulously detailed, as in the fine lace of the décolletage, for example, but elsewhere, such as in the drapery or face, the composition is overly finished and highly stylised.
