The original marble statue was presented to the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture in 1742 as Pigalle's morceau de reception, and became instantly famous. It was Pigalle's first tremendous success, in fact, the most successful ever in the Academy's history. He received a royal command for large-scale marble versions of this and its pendant, a Venus which the king was to dispatch to Frederick the Great. It now resides in the Louvre.
