The four generations of Lemoyne have come to occupy an important place in the history of French sculpture. The success of Jean-Baptiste (1704–1778), Louis XV’s favorite sculptor, should, however, not outshine the talent of other members of this family such as his father Jean-Louis (1665–1755), or Jean-Baptiste Ier, his uncle (1679–1731), all examined in this publication.
