    -
    🐢 Ce garçon joyeux, jouant avec une tortue entravée par un brin de jonc, est un petit pêcheur. Assis sur un filet, il porte un bonnet et un scapulaire (objet de dévotion passé autour du cou) qui indiquent son origine napolitaine.

    ✨ With the model of this sculpture, executed in 1829 and shown at the Salon of 1831, François Rude inaugurated a theme destined to be hugely successful. At the Salon of 1833, the sculptor Francisque Duret showed a nimble, playful Neapolitan Fisher Boy Dancing the Tarantella, also enshrined at the Louvre.

    🐚 Among the many subsequent interpretations was Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux's outstanding Young Fisherman with Shell. The work is preserved at the @museeorsay and its plaster model at the Louvre. Its execution dates to the artist's first visit to Rome, where he ordered a cast of the face of Rude's Fisher Boy to be sent.
