  • Description

    Active between 1882 and 1922, Paul Paulin was an important French sculptor associated with the Impressionist movement. He met Edgar Degas in 1883 who encouraged him to develop his bronze and plaster sculptures. Paulin exhibited at the Salon des Français from 1882 to 1889 and at the Salon des Beaux-Arts in 1901. After making the bust of Degas, Paulin executed a bust of Auguste Renoir who then became a close friend. He also realized the busts of Camille Pissarro, Jean-François Raffaelli, Claude Monet, Auguste Rodin, Armand Guillaumin, Edouard Brissaud and Queen Victoria. Today, many major works by Paulin are held in the collections of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. A similar bust is held in the permanent collection of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford
