Commentary


La famille Bignon forma une dynastie d'érudits dont Armand Jérôme ne fut pas le plus brillant représentant mais parvint, sans avoir jamais écrit, à rentrer à l'Académie Française Il était prévôt des marchands durant les fêtes du Mariage de Louis XVI et Marie-Antoinette mais ne semble pas avoir subi de défaveur après l'accident de feu d'artifice qui tua de nombreux spectateurs.
