About Auguste Moreau
Auguste Moreau was a french sculptor. Born in Paris in 1834, Auguste is the youngest son of the sculptor Jean-Baptiste Moreau. He studied with his father as well as Aimé Millet, Augustin Drumont and Jean Thomas.All of the three Moreau brothers – Hippolyte, Marthurin and Auguste – became renowned for their figurative sculpture.
In 1861, Auguste made his debut at the Salon where he would exhibit regularly until 1913. His subjects were primarily young maidens sensuously clad in swirling diaphanous dress and usually decorated with flowers and birds or allegorical and genre scenes incorporating cupids and young children. His style was realistic and graceful evoking a feeling both impish and innocent.
His sculptors are mostly bronze, and shown at fine art museums such as the Museum of Troyes and the Museum of Fine Arts of Bordeaux.
