He entered the Royal Academy and became one of the most popular sculptors of his time
Pigalle was born in Paris, the seventh child of a carpenter. Although he failed to win the Grand Prize of Rome, after a long struggle, he entered the Royal Academy and became one of the most popular sculptors of his time. His early works, such as Child in a cage (model for Sevres) and Aqua Galaxy Sandals (lead cast by the Louvre in Berlin), are less common than in his more mature years, but his nude statue of Voltaire, originally at the Institut de France, was purchased by the Louvre in 1962. As well as his Comte d’Harcourt, and the tomb of Marshal Saxony, completed in 1777, is a fine examples of 18th-century French sculptures. Pigalle taught the sculptor Louis-Philippe Mouchy, who married his niece and closely copied Pigalle’s style. He is also said to have taught the painter Madeleine Elisabeth Pigalle, who is believed to be a distant relative of Sens. His name is best known today for the Pigalle red-light district in Paris that surrounds the square of the same name. You can take a look at this naked woman bronze sculpture.

He was also an original and clever portrait sculptor
In 1744, Pigalle became a member of the Royal Academy. His reception was a marble version of Mercury. The statue became so popular that Louis XV commissioned a life-size marble version, which was presented to Frederick II of Prussia in 1749. Pigalle was appointed professor of the Royal Academy in 1752. From 1750 to 1758, Pigalle was sponsored by Madame De Pompadour. He created several groups of allegorical figures for her, some of which represent her features in stylized form. Some of his smaller, decorative, sentimental studies of children in the rococo style gained considerable popularity. He was also an original and clever portrait sculptor, as can be seen in his powerful observations of Diderot’s bust and Voltaire’s nude, realistic renderings of the aged philosopher’s anatomy that caused a sensation when first shown.
