Son of the sculptor Edme Dumont (1722-1775), Jacques-Edme was admitted to the École des Élèves Protégés in 1777 and won the Prix de Rome in 1788. The present marble is among the few sculptures made by the young artist while working under the direction of Augustin Pajou (1730-1809). It combines the elegance of Pajou's work with a technical precision typical of Dumont. The graceful silhouette of the body and the elongated proportions in comparison to the size of the face resemble the female nudes of Augustin Pajou and Etienne Maurice Falconet (1716-1791).
