XIX - XXth century sculptures
COUTAN Jules Félix (1848-1939)
He was taught by Cavelier at the Beaux-Arts and trained on antic models and exhibited academic works, whether portraits, characters or allegorical compositions at the Salon des Artistes Français. He quickly became the sculptor of the Republic. For instance, he executed animal sculptures, fountains and was interested in decorative arts, while creating pieces for Christofle for exemple.
