The Intoxication of Wine  Clodion   (Claude Michel) ca. 1780-90

Clodion (Claude Michel) | The Intoxication of Wine | French, Paris | The Met

Clodion, whose career spanned the last decades of the ancien régime through the French Revolution and Napoleon's reign, embraced his era's taste for antiquity. Sometimes this preference is more apparent in his choice of theme than in his style

CLODION: Satyr and Baccante-The Intoxication of Wine, c.1780–90. Terracotta, H. 23 x W. 16 7/8 x D. 11 1/4 in. (58.4 x 42.9 x 28.6 cm), MET, N.Y. While often Neoclassical, his manner at times remained quite Rococo, as in the present example. Although Clodion received a number of important commissions for monumental marble sculptures, his fame and popularity rested on his skill at modeling small-scale terracotta groups for private collectors.
