FURTHER INFORMATION:The French sculptor lived and worked in Paris all his life, exhibiting at many of the capital's Salons. He participated in the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts from 1899 to 1904, in the Salon des Indépendants from 1902 and later in the Salon d'Automne and elsewhere. His style was inspired by that of Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux, Jules Dalou and Jean-Baptiste Pigalle but the sculptor was also influenced by classical and Renaissance models. He worked in bronze or terracotta producing small-scale female heads and figures. At the Salon des Indépendants in 1902, he exhibited the sculpture of a girl's head, which attracted the attention of Maurice Denis. In addition to such works, he created a decorative sculpture for furniture, architecture and domestic objects, as in the Naiad (see Vaillat, p. 275) designed for a pedestal
bowl. He also created numerous low reliefs such as Maternity (see Vaillat, p. 276).
