He studied with Bosio and Gros and exhibited at the Paris salons from 1827-1844 becoming a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour in 1837. He sculptured numerous heroic figures and bas reliefs for public statuary, and also did portrait busts of his contemporaries.

His sculptures are very rare and seldom found in the U.S. This one was discovered on a buying trip to South America. (Item #72032)
