«French sculptor»

Auguste Rodin

Auguste Rodin
(November 12, 1840 - November 17, 1917)
François-Auguste-René Rodin was a French sculptor. Although Rodin is generally considered the progenitor of modern sculpture, he did not set out to rebel against the past. He was schooled traditionally, took a craftsman-like approach to his work, and desired academic recognition, although he was never accepted into Paris's foremost school of art.

Francois Girardon

Francois Girardon
(March 17, 1628 - September 1, 1715)
François Girardon was a French sculptor. He was born at Troyes. As a boy he had for master a joiner and wood-carver of his native town, named Baudesson, under whom he is said to have worked at the chateau of Liebault, where he attracted the notice of Chancellor Séguier. By the chancellor's influence Girardon was first removed to Paris and placed in the studio of François Anguier, and afterwards sent to Rome.
