Jean Goujon (1510-1565)

Jean Goujon was the foremost French sculptor of the 16th-century; his most well-known work is a series of reliefs for the Fountain of the Innocents. Not only a sculptor, but an architect as well, Goujon was one of the main players in the French Renaissance.

Goujon's sculptures are prime examples of the mannerism movement in France. His figures are elongated, sensual and fluid, as well as reminiscent of Greek sculpture. Goujon's graceful and pure style influenced the decorative arts in France for centuries to follow. His most famous works include a series of water nymphs for the Fountain of the Innocents in Paris and other sculptures on the faade of the Louvre.
