As a boy he had for master a joiner and wood-carver of his native town, named Baudesson, under whom he is said to have worked at the chateau of Liebault, where he attracted the notice of Chancellor Seguier. By the chancellor's influence Girardon was first removed to Paris and placed in the studio of Francois Anguier, and afterwards sent to Rome.   more from wikipedia »
