Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux
(French, 1827 - 1875)

One of the major sculptors in mid-nineteenth century France, Carpeaux studied under Franҫois Rude before embarking on a trip to Italy in 1854 where he was able to study ancient Roman and Hellenistic statues as well as the works of Michelangelo. He became an early teacher of Rodin, in whose work there are strong resemblances. Carpeaux's most celebrated work is his sculptural group called 'Danse' for the Opéra Garnier, Paris (the original is now displayed in the Musée d'Orsay, Paris).
