"Sculpture Marble Francois Perraud"Exceptional white marble sculpture depicting a young woman draped in half lying, rooster at his feet, signed F. PERRAUD 1919, the base yellow Siena marble. Francois Perraud and son Georges had their sculpture studio at 23 rue Fouré Nantes. The first, born in Nantes in 1849, studied in Paris before returning to settle in his hometown. He participated in the completion of the decoration of the cathedral, a group of carved statues (Agriculture, Commerce, Industry and Navigation) on the front of the station of Nantes-State. He is also the author in 1909 of The Fame, which adorns the tower of the old LU factory. His son George has made the memorial Escoublac-La Baule in 1923, and identical copy (after the original Dominique Molknecht) of the statue that sits on the column Louis XVI in 1926.
