Medal By Henri Dubois For Universal Exposition 1904 St. (saint) Louis World Fair:
Henri Dubois (1859-1930) was a French sculptor and medalist. He was taught by his father, Alphee Dubois, as well as Chapus and Falguiere. In 1878 he received a Second Grand Prix de Rome de Gravure en Medailles, losing to Louis Bottee. He also won the Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur in 1903. He was described a member of the "more cultured and graceful school of French medallists." This is a wonderful example of his work. The St. Louis World's Fair was held to celebrate the centenary of the Louisiana Purchase, and this medal is among many beautiful achievements presented there.
