Catalogue Note

The delicate modelling of the terracotta, the hair magnified by complex hairstyles, the nakedness of one of the bacchantes - barely veiled by the second - give to these busts the mischievous sensuality that characterised Marin's style. As pupil of Clodion (1738-1814), he managed to compete with his master's ability for Anacreontic or Bacchic subjects in great favour among private collectors.
