Auguste Moreau, the third son of sculptor and painter Jean Baptiste Moreau, Auguste initiated himself to sculpture along with his older brother Mathurin. In 1861, he made his debut at the Salon, where he would exhibit regularly until 1913. His subjects were primarily genre scenes, pastorals, and allegories; his style was realistic and graceful, revealing his relation to the other members of the Moreau dynasty. The similitude of names sometimes provokes confusion in the attribution of certain works signed without first initials. *Please click on the thumbnail images above to see additional views of this detailed artwork, and then click on any image to enlarge it.
