Louise Bust Stone

Louise and Alexandre were the children of architect Alexandre-Thodore Brongniart (1739-1813), famous for designing the Stock Exchange building in Paris and transforming the Pre Lachaise Cemetery.

Thanks to his mother who was a painter and his father who was a caretaker at the Louvre museum, Jean-Antoine Houdon (1741-1828) became acquainted at a very early age with the best sculptors of his time, such as Jean Baptiste Pigalle and Jean Baptiste Lemoyne.

He is considered the Sculptor of the Enlightenment and fixed in stone the portraits of important figures of the time, including the Tsarina Catherine the Great of Russia, Diderot, Voltaire and Rousseau.
