Jean Jules ALLASSEUR (1818-1903).
French sculptor (born in Paris, September 1, 1818, died in Paris, March 23, 1903), Allasseur worked at the start of his career for David d'Angers, whose education he followed. He entered the École des Beaux-Arts on October 7, 1835. He started at the Salon from 1846. A few years later, suffering from an eye disease, became almost blind and had to reduce his activity as a sculptor. He executed statues for the church of Saint-Étienne-du-Mont and the Hôtel de Ville. We also owe him busts that decorate the Cherbourg theater. He obtained a second class medal in 1853, a first class medal in 1859 and a silver medal at the Universal Exhibition. He continued to exhibit at the Salon until 1870. He returned to the Salon in 1888, with Rameau (monumental marble statue of 1.90 m). He was decorated with the Legion of Honor in August 1867.
