Lot Essay

Several identical portrait reliefs are known, some of which are thought to have been executed in Puget's workshop. The example in the Musée des Beaux Arts, Marseilles (Exhibited 'Pierre Puget, peintre, sculpteur, architecte 1620-1694', Exhibition Catalogue, 1994, pp. 134-135) is thought to have been purchased prior to 1758 by François Borely.
COMPARATIVE LITERATURE:
