FRENCH
HEBE AND THE EAGLE OF JUPITER 

Catalogue Note

Jules-Pierre Roulleau attended the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, studying under Cavelier and Barrias. He won the second Grand Prix de Rome, and debuted at the Salon of 1878. The present model was first conceived in marble for the Exposition Universelle of 1889. Hebe and the Eagle became a popular subject towards the later 18th century, and in the present model, Roulleau has skillfully combined the classical theme with shapes and motifs fitting for French Romanticism of the 19th century.
