David Le Marchand

(1674-1726), Sculptor

Sitter in 1 portrait
Artist of 1 portrait
Born in Dieppe, Le Marchand was a sculptor in ivory. He emigrated to Scotland to avoid religious persecuting for his Huguenot beliefs after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes made it dangerous to remain in France. His earliest signed medallion dates from 1696 by which time he was working in London where he spent most of his career. He continued to produce small-scale medallions and busts of notable figures, like John Locke, for patrons such as George I and Sir Christopher Wren.
