Fran ois Girardon was a French sculptor. He was born at Troyes. As
a boy he had for master a joiner and wood-carver of his native
town, named Baudesson, under whom he is said to have worked at the
chateau of Liebault, where he attracted the notice of Chancellor S
guier. By the chancellor's influence Girardon was first removed to
Paris and placed in the studio of Fran ois Anguier, and afterwards
sent to Rome. In 1652 he was back in France, and seems at once to
have addressed himself with something like ignoble subserviency to
the task of conciliating the court painter Charles Le Brun.
Girardon is reported to have declared himself incapable of
composing a group, whether with truth or from motives of policy it
is impossible to say
