Becquerel was a pupil of Hector Lemaire and Prosper Lecourtier at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. He specialised primarily in animal sculpture in the Art Deco style, which he exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français from 1914 to 1922. His most famous work is The Finish, depicting two racehorses in a photo-finish.
