David d'Angers

David d'Angers or Pierre-Jean David (dävēd´ däNzhā´; pyĕr-zhäN), 1788–1856, French sculptor. His works are numerous and present national figures, often nude, in statues, busts, reliefs, and medallions. The pediment of the Panthéon in Paris shows a group of distinguished Frenchmen receiving wreaths from the hand of France. Although he was considered a romantic in his day, his style reflects a strong academic training. The Musée David at Angers, his birthplace, has a fine collection of his sculptures.
