Aimé-Jules Dalou was one of the leading French sculptors of the late 19th century. He was the most prolific monument maker in Paris during the 1880s and 1890s and his contribution of iconic statues to the French capital rivals that of his great contemporary Rodin.

About

After the fall of the Paris Commune in 1871, Dalou spend the rest of the decade in exile in England. During his stay he developed a strong English patronage and

helped to influence a new generation of British Sculptors, whose work came to be known as ’New Sculpture’.

On his return to Paris, Dalou concentrated primarily on the design and execution of large-scale monuments, including his masterful 'Monument to the Republic’.

The exhibition at Bowman Sculpture will include key models as well as less known works from throughout Dalou’s career, including Bathers, Workers, Mythological Subjects, and Nudes.

The exhibition will be a mix of works for sale and on loan. Prices start around £7,000.
