Jean Augustin Moreau-Vauthier (French, 1831 ~ 1893) Jean Moreau-Vauthier Son of a tablietier, Moreau-Vautier enjoyed practicing sculpture in ivory, with which he debuted in the Salon in 1857. At the time his works were signed ‘Moreau’, it was only in 1865 that he adopted the name ‘Moreau-Vautier’ to distinguish himself from other sculptors carrying his last name. He was also fond of precious metals – gold, silver, stone and enamel – which he frequently incorporated in his figures, allegorical and mythological groups and portraits. Many of his works were cast in bronze by the famous foundries of F Barbedienne and Thiebaut Freres.
