Germain Pilon’s mastery of sculptural techniques and the quality of his work as a medalist have made him the emblematic sculptor of 16th-century France. This volume presents studies on the issue of influences, the destiny of the artist’s works and, more generally, the French sculptors of the time. The collection is a major contribution to our knowledge of art at the Valois Court and promotes a greater understanding of the leading role the sculptor played.
