French statuary

After being focused on ancient greek and roman art for couple of years, I’ve decided to turn myself to French statues during the 2015 summer. Two couples of paintings are the result of long studies in the Louvre musuem: first are mid-sized marvelous alabaster neo-calssic figures depicting young men, based on work by Pierre Julien and Louis Petitot, the other two interprete magnificent bucolique pair of marbles by Coustou, one of my favourite sculptors of baroque era. Every of these two pairs are concieved as a decorative elements to adorn an interior, following a principle of XVIth and XVIIIth cenuty ‘pendants’.
