Commissioned in 1750 the statue, which imitates the traits of the Marquise of Pompadour, was placed in a thicket of a park at the Chateau de Bellevue formerly dedicated to Cupid, which was not surprising when she was King Louis XV's official mistress. The allegory is presented in key indications of iconology within the sculpture: wearing a simple white robe tucked down to reveal her breasts, nude arms, in a pose ready to help whoever she likes; by her feet are posies and flowers of all seasons, because if Love doesn't have time, friendship (Madame de Pompadour) flowers in all seasons of life.
