LEMOYNE, Jean-Louis
(b. 1665, Paris, d. 1755, Paris)

Bust of the Regent

Château de Versailles, Versailles

Lemoyne continued the noble style of Coysevox, in such busts as this, but his work lacked that sharpness of expression and psychological penetration which distinguished the busts by his predecessor.
