Catalogue Note

Louis Tuaillon (Berlin 7 September 1862 — Berlin 21 February 1919) was a Prussian sculptor. From 1879 to 1881 he attended the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Berlin, then worked in the studio of Reinhold Begas. In Vienna he spent two years in the studio of Rudolf Weyr, then lived and worked from 1885 to 1903 in Rome. There between 1890 and 1895 he executed his chief work, the monumental bronze Amazone zu Pferde, which was set up in front of the Nationalgalerie in Berlin in 1898. Tuaillon became friendly with Georg Kolbe and a member of the Berliner Sezession from 1902. In 1906 Tuaillon was nominated Professor at the Berlin Academy.
Louis Touaillon is one of the innovators of modern sculpture in the Berliner Bildhauerschule. His heroic nudes on classical themes may still be seen in public parks in Berlin, Bremen, Mecklenburg, Barnim, Bad Freienwalde, and at Schloss Merseburg.
The monumental bronze group Der Rosslenker has been executed in Rome and was set up in Bremen in 1902.
