Bust of the Baroness de Joursanvault
  Pierre Paul Prudhon

This very attractive bust, a work from Prudhon's youth, represents the wife of his patron, Baron de Joursanvault. The latter came originally from Beaune (1748-1792), was highly cultured and a patron of the arts with loyalty to the Masons. He was also a collector on a very large scale. His library is today preserved at the National Library and is made up of over 80,000 documents!
