Happy birthday to Parisian sculptor Augustin Pajou! A prolific and renowned artist in his time, Pajou’s busts of celebrated figures including Madame du Barry and Buffon evidence his talent at capturing personality and expression. The Clark’s Bust of a Man, though not as famous as either Madame Du Barry or Buffon, is just as spirited.
