Bohème et Hongrie, Paris, 1928, p. 34; Victor Champier, "Le goût français dans les Flandres aux XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles", Revue du Nord, t. 15, n°59, August 1929, pp. 177-200; Philippe Sorel, "Trois sculptures de l'époque révolutionnaire : propositions d'attributions", Gazette des Beaux-Arts, October 1990, pp. 137-143. Born in Brussels and trained in Antwerp and Paris (with Augustin Pajou), Barthélémy Verboeckhoven, also known as Barthélémy Fickaert, has a cosmopolitan style. After criss-crossing Europe, he seized the opportunity to become a collaborator at the Valenciennes porcelain factory. Valenciennes in 1780, but stayed in Ghent in 1815 and Brussels in 1827, exhibiting at the 1828, 1829 and 1832 Salons de Valenciennes and at the Brussels Salon of 1832, where he exhibited a Milon of Crotone. He drew his inspiration from many influences. His style is marked by his many travels, as much by the late Baroque movement as by the antique ideal, or by the style of Flemish artists of the late 18th century. Our Allégorie de la Paix (Peace Allegory) bears close resemblance to the terracotta group in the Monument à la gloire de Necker (Monument to the glory of Necker), created by the artist in 1789.
