Claude Michel, known as Clodion
(Nancy 1738 - Paris 1814)
A circular terra-cotta relief showing a satyr sitting on a seesaw and playing the pipe to a female satyr and two children.
The way in which this one is shown is typical of Clodion, who was famous for showing mythological nudes in the graceful pastoral setting that was typical of Rococo. But although the refined and attractive presentation is typical of Clodion there is some hesitancy of workmanship so we cannot be sure it is his work.
