Description

François Rémond became master gilder and bronzier in 1774 and rapidly became the supplier to Dominique Daguerre and then Martin-Eloi Lignereux, the renowned marchands-merciers at the end of Louis XVI's reign. His commercial activity is best revealed by his livre-journal for the years 1777-87 as well as the record of his payments to suppliers which have partly been preserved covering the years 1785 to 1806, brought to light by C. Baulez. He is known to have worked with the sculptors Foucou, Budelot and Roguier; however, the name that appears most frequently is Boizot. The collaboration between Boizot and Rémond is best illustrated by the recreation of models made at Sèvres and then executed by Rémond for Daguerre.
