It is mainly known for its bronze art reproduction foundry. In 1839, the barbedian founded the house where he had most of the statues of the deurope museums reproduced in bronze, small enough to adorn modern interiors. His idea was to democratize art, making faithful reproductions of masterpieces accessible. The themes chosen are often allegorical, and draw heavily from the ancient repertoire. Even today, it is quite common to find in the \"bourgeois\" homes bronzes signed barbedian.
He applied his methods to the work of the sculptors of his barye, fremiet, lead, etc. And created many models of bronze furniture, enamels, partitioned, high and bas-reliefs in wood etc. Through the publishing contracts he proposed to them, he contributed to their success by disseminating their works. Being childless, it was his nephew and successor, a leblanc-barbedian gustave, who developed the foundry by specializing in monumental bronzes.
