Jean-Louis Grégoire (1840-1890), the son of a chiseler, was born in Paris on 15 December 1840. He trained under the celebrated sculptor Jean Jules Salmson at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and his work was first exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1867. Grégoire is known for mythological and allegorical figural sculptures which were often classical in nature and commonly took war and music as their themes, typical of the Academic style in which he was trained. Many of his works have been cast in bronze by the famous foundry Susse Frères. Grégoire passed away in France in 1890.
