Emmanuel FREMIET (1824-1910)
Born December 6, 1824 in Paris, died September 10, 1910 in Paris. French artist. Sculptor of history, mythological compositions, religious scenes, allegorical subjects, busts, animals, engraver, draftsman. Emmanuel Fremiet was best known for his sculptures; his drawings are generally ignored. He made plaster or bronze, many studies of animals, scenes inspired by the work of Darwin, the life of the first hominids or prehistoric animals. His works reveal his sharp sense of observation, which is a reflection of his scientific studies; they taught him the truth of bodies.
