Jean Pierre Cortot (d. 1843) studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, Paris. After winning the Prix de Rome in 1809, he returned to Paris as professor at the Ecole.
Cortot exhibited the plaster model at the Salon in 1822. In 1831, Louis-Philippe, recently crowned, commissioned a marble version from Cortot which now resides in the Louvre.
Barbedienne edited the model in four sizes, the present cast being an example of the largest.
