France 2 will broadcast on Sunday, March 18, as part of its programme “D’Art Art”, a section dedicated to the famous equestrian statue of Louis XIV, which stands at Place des Victoires in Paris, work of the Monegasque sculptor François-Joseph Bosio. The statue was so impressive that Bosio and received the title of “First Sculptor of the King”.

The Prince’s Government has wanted to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the birth of this artist and to make known the importance of his work to a wider public. Bosio, supported and encouraged by the patronage of Prince Honoré III, made a brilliant career in the French capital. He continues to surprise us with the variety and richness of his work.

A new episode dedicated to another major work of Bosio will be broadcast in 2018.
