Catalogue Note

A student of François Rude and of the Fine-Arts School, Marcellin exhibited for the first time in the 1845 Salon. Among his official commissions on Paris were several sculptures for the facade of the Louvre, the Tuileries Palace, the Town Hall, the Opera and the churches of La Sorbonne and Saint-Gervais-Saint-Protais. He was also the author of the pediment of the Town Hall of Marseille and the marble group of the Shepherd Cypress (Grenoble Museum).
