Son of the sculptor Jean-Didier Debut, Marcel Debut was born in March 1865. He worked in his father's studio, then with Henri Chapu during his stay at the École des Beaux-Arts, before to exhibit himself at the Salons, from 1883. His sculptures on Orientalist themes are often confused with those of his father, who only signed "Debut". He also produces Art Nouveau objects. He died in Paris in 1933.

The work: the falconer Falconry has always been a buoyant theme in Art. Medieval manuscripts contain many illuminations. Eugène Fromentin (1820-1876) Orientalist painter and novelist, during his three stays in the Maghreb, was greatly inspired by the theme of falconry. His paintings, bright and full of passion, are presented at the Salons. They were able to mark the memory of young Debut who, a few years later, deals with this subject in turn. The attitude of the falconer is not unlike that of the Falconer sculpted by Pierre-Jules Mene, by the gesture of the hand that receives the hawk. Turned towards his goal, the gaze focused, the falconer wears a well trimmed beard. Dressed in a skirt, he wears a wide belt ending in fringes. On a shirt with rolled up sleeves, he wears a gilded bolero with sober decoration. His skull is capped with a sort of cap partly covered by a scarf in the colors of his belt from which escape abundant strands of hair. In one hand, he holds both a long spade, which no doubt serves him to search the bushes to flush out the game, and the chaperone he will put on the falcon as soon as the hunt is over. His dynamic attitude and smooth-faced face evoke a young man.
