Pastoral Group, c.1770
The group with a shepherd playing his pipe to a sleeping shepherdess is a good example of the influence of French Rococo on early Derby ware. It derives from a painting by François Boucher (1703-1770), and may have been modelled by the sculptor Pierre Stephan from Tournai. He worked at Chelsea, and moved to Derby about 1770.
