Mathurin Moreau's work is famous for its elegant academic style, wonderfully exemplified by this intimate scene of Classically inspired figures.
Mathurin Moreau (1822–1912) was a French sculptor in the academic style. He was born in Dijon, first exhibited in the 1848 Salon, and finally received a medal of honor from the Salon in 1897. He was made mayor of the XIXe arrondissement, Paris, and in 1912 had a street named in his honor.
