Maquette of an angel to decorate the chair of Troyes Cathedral
Baron Henri de Triqueti
The Triqueti room of the Musée Girodet, Montargis, France
As Véronique Galliot-Rateau says, there are many angels in Triqueti's oeuvre (29). He was a deeply religious man. Brought up as a Roman Catholic, he later became a zealous convert to Protestantism.
