Important Trest marble bust of Marquis Jean Deydé.

Sculpted in 1684 by Christophe Veyrier for the private chapel of the Marquis.



With the collaboration of the best artists of the time such as Pierre Mignard, Veyrier had contributed

the chapel attributed to Deydé in 1643 in the cathedral of Montpellier. The portrait of the wife

the marquis Deydé, during our bust is currently housed at the musée Fabre of Montpellier

in the form of casting : Catherine of Ortholan (1634-1687), marquise Deydé look at also

towards the interior, the head turned to the left and is the same size as our marble. This casting

the marquise Deydé the Fabre museum is a cast of the marble original, formerly known

in the collection of Jean Pétin Paris.

Our bust and that of the marquise Deydé that were made for the tomb of the two spouses, framed

originally an urn monumental marble so-called "ballot box Veyrier" well known to lovers

(coll. Part.).

Sculptor working under the direction of Pierre Puget (1620-1694), to which these busts have sometimes

been attributed to Christophe Veyrier (1637-1689) was awarded the order of the busts and urn for

to adorn the tomb carried out for the chapel granted to Jean Deydé in the cathedral of Saint Peter of

Montpellier and whose transformation had been given to Pierre Puget.

This bust remained unreleased until today -though mentioned on the art market between the

two wars - had nonetheless been the subject of three castings in the years 1770-1780 for

heirs of John and Catherine Deydé (like the bust of Catherine of Ortholan which the plaster

it is kept at the Fabre museum).
