HERBERT, PIERRE-EUGÈNE-EMILE (FRENCH, 1828-1893)
Pierre-Eugène-Emile Hébert (1823-1893) was a renowned 19th Century French sculptor. A versatile artist, Herbert produced romantic bronzes and marbles, as well as furniture and decorative pieces in the Neoclassical and Egyptian Revival styles.
 
The son of sculptor Pierre Hébert, Emile studied under the guidance of his father and sculptor Jean-Jacques Feuchère. Hébert exhibited at many of important 19th Century exhibitions, including the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1855 and the Great Exhibitions in London of 1862 and 1867; at the latter the sculptor was awarded a gold medal for his work. Hébert was one of the few sculptors to work with the famous bronze fondeur Georges Servant, and their artistic collaboration resulted in exceptional pieces of the Neo-Grecian and Egyptian Revival style.
 
Today, Hébert's works are housed in the collections of prestigious public institutions such as the National Gallery in Washington D.C. and the Musèe D'Orsay in Paris.
