Born in Paris in 1857, he studied under sculptors as Barrau, Roufosse andScaillet and exposed from 1893 in the Salon des Artistes Français, where he received an honourable mention in 1898.
Worked mainly in bronze, bronze with ivory and silver and gold patinas and sometimes small gemstones and posessed a typical atmosphere of the decadence of the fin de siècle, as for instance After the Bath, Slave for sale, Atalanta, Venus, Mlle. Suzanne.
The often small bronzes are wonderfully patinated and very finely detailed. Also his wax seals with often oriental motives are internationally very wanted.
