Paul Eugène Breton was a student of Jean Falguière, Félix Charpentier and Laurent Marqueste, all prominent sculptors of the 19th century Paris Salon. Breton received an honourable mention in 1896 and a medal in 1899. He was mostly known as a sculptor of mythological subjects. The present lot shows his affinity with Romantic subjects and is highly decorative, combining fluid motions and contrasting materials.
