A terracotta sculpture by French artist Joseph Charles Marin (1759-1834) was recently purchased by the Museum. The sculpture is titled Bacchante Carrying a Child on Her Shoulders and was sculpted during the late 18th century when such sculptures were popular. Marin was a student and collaborator of the artist Claude-Michel Clodion and likely created the figure between the 1780s and 1796.
