Francis Remond (1747 -1812)

He was one of the pre-eminent bronziers of his era. Appointed Maitre-doreur in 1774 his rise was meteoric, having the fourth highest turnover amongst some eight hundred other bronziers in Paris by 1786. He worked as a fondeur and ciseleur, as well as a doreur and thus was able to exercise considerable artistic control over his output. In particular, he worked extensively for Daguerre, for whom he supplied work valued at the staggering sum of 920,000 livres between 1778 and 1792.
