Life of CHARLES-FRANÇOIS NANTEUIL


 Advertisements

 
  French sculptor. He studied with Pierre Cartellier at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, assimilating a classicizing notion of ideal beauty that lasted throughout his career. He won the Prix de Rome in 1817 and in Rome in 1822 carved the marble Dying Eurydice (Paris, Louvre), which made a notable dbut at the Salon of 1824 and later inspired Auguste Clsinger’s erotic marble Woman Bitten by a Snake (1847; Paris, Muse d’Orsay). Nanteuil was an accomplished portrait sculptor, producing many busts, including those of the painter Prud’hon (marble, 1828; Paris, Louvre) and of his fellow-fighter against Romanticism , the Neoclassical art critic Quatremère de Quincy (marble, Salon of 1850; Paris, Institut France).
