Ferdinand Levillain (1837-1905), sculptor and medal engraver, exhibited at the Salon between 1861 and 1903. He worked closely with the foundry of Ferdinand Barbedienne for whom he created several bronze models inspired by the Antique.

Ferdinand Barbedienne (1810-1892) was a prolific Parisian bronze founder in the second half of the 19th century. He set up the F.Barbedienne foundry in 1838 in partnership with Achille Collas, who had invented a machine that could mechanically reproduce sculptures in reduced sizes.They started with the production of reductions of Classical sculptures but soon were contracting living artists - like David D'Angers, Jean-Baptiste Clesinger, Antoine Louis Barye, Ferdinand Levillain and Henry Cahieux - to create original models. The foundry had, at a point, over 300 workers. Barbedienne died in 1892 but the foundry continued until closing its doors in 1951.
