Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux (1827/1875) was born in Valenciennes, he is in Paris in 1838 and learns drawing and sculpture at the School of Decorative Arts. Student of the Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1844 with François Rude as teacher, his talent was rewarded with a Rome Prize in 1854 and resided at the Villa Medici in 1856. Back in France in 1862 and close to Napoleon III (he was a teacher drawing of the Prince Imperial) he obtained numerous public commissions, including the decorations of the Pavillon de Flore at the Louvre. One of the most important French sculptors of the 19th century, today his works are presented and appreciated all over the world.
