Étienne Maurice Falconet (1716-1791) was one of the most important French sculptor of his time. His equestrian statue of Peter the Great in St. Petersburg - was commissioned by Catherine the Great and the mediation of his friend Denis Diderot - is still regarded as a masterpiece.

However, he owed his first big successes to small sculpture. Falconet was one of the artists who formulated the new artistic ideas of the Rococo baroque, focusing mainly on figures from mythology. L'Amour menaçant, the "menacing Love" from 1757 and "La Beigneuse (the bathers)” marked together not only its artistic, but also his professional breakthrough.

Sponsored by Madame de Pompadour, Falconet was artistic director of the Porcelain Manufactory of Sevres; here, and in subsequent years, he create a series of works that make him famous far beyond the France's borders.
