LAPORTE-BLAIRSY Léo M. V. (1865-1923)
Also known as Blaisin, he was born in a family of artists and was taught by Falguière and Mercié. He started exhibiting classical subjects in an allegorical and mythological style at the Salon des Artistes Français and worked on public monuments. He later started producing decorative objects in bronze, in a Art Nouveau style, that will make him famous. In the late 1910s he developped his skills on stone and executed less intimist arts. His bronzes where cast by Susse and Hébrard among others.
