Mathurin Moreau

Mathurin Moreau (1822-1912), born in Dijon, was a French sculptor who worked in the traditional academic stye of the 19th century. He entered the École des Beaux Arts in Paris in 1841 and won the Second Grande Prix de Rome with his Diodemus removing the Palladium in 1842.  He made his Salon debut in 1848 and earned numerous medals and prizes at subsequent Salons and international exhibitions. He provided the Val d'Osne foundry with many sculpture models for the manufacturer of decorative bronze statuettes well into the 20th century. Several of his works remain on public display in Paris, including L'Océanie in the courtyard of the Musée d’Orsay.
