a French sculptor and academician and the younger brother of French sculptor Nicolas Coustou. Like his brother, he was employed by Louis XIV and Louis XV. His finest works are the famous group of the "Horse Tamers" (Chevaux de Marly), which reinvent the theme of the colossal Roman marbles of the Horse Tamers in the Piazza Quirinale, Rome.
