Emmanuel Fremiet, (1824 - 1910) was born in Paris, France December 6th 1824 into an upper middle class Paris family with close ties to the art world. Next to Antoine Louis Barye, Fremiet is considered to be the finest and best known of the French Animalier sculptors and responsible for bringing animal sculpture into fashion with the collecting world. He has the distinction of being the sculptor with the greatest influence on the numerous young art students flocking to Paris from America in the late 19th and early 20th century . It was not uncommon for Fremiet to instruct 20 or more pupils at a single time in his studio or at the Louvre where he was director of sculpture. To list all of the Museums which display bronzes by Emmanuel Fremiet would take an entire page of its own.
