XIX - XXth century sculptures

FORETAY Alfred (1861-1944)

Painter, decorator and sculptor, he attended Falguière's classes at the Beaux-Arts and started exhibiting busts and rather conventional subjects at the Salon des Artistes Français in 1888, before improving into an uncommon art, mixing together Art Nouveau and Orientalism, two thematic movements, to create one of his own, in which women are glorified.
