Johann Peter Alexander Wagner

(1730-1809)

Johann Peter Alexander Wagner (26 February 17301 – 7 January 1809) was a German rococo sculptor. In December 1771 he became the court sculptor to Adam Friedrich von Seinsheim, Prince–Bishop of Würzburg for whom he created several works over the next decade. This item was from the cycle of figures in the court garden of the Würzburg Residence, a palace in Würzburg, Germany completed in 1744, representative of Baroque/Rococo or Neoclassical architecture and art. Wagner's style changed during his career from rococo to classical upon his assumption of the position of court sculptor, and finally back to rococo.
