Catalogue Note

The multi-talented Louis Chalon was not only a sculptor, but also a painter and an illustrator. He exhibited in the Salon between 1898 and 1911, and rapidly became known for his busts, antique and mythological subjects, and a variety of Art Nouveau-style bronzes. The present model, an example of the latter category, shows flowing drapery and the amusing addition of the octopus.
