Charles Valton (1851-1918) was a French animal sculptor born in Pau, France in 1851 but was raised in Paris; admitted to the Beaux-Arts academy, he was both Antoine Louis Barye and Emmanuel Fremiet's student. Valton studied at the famous Paris botanical garden, "Le Jardin des Plantes" and made his debut at the Paris Salon in 1868. From 1868 to 1914, over seventy of his animal models were exhibited at the Salon. In 1875, he became a member of the Society of French Artists. He received medals for his sculptures in 1875 and 1885, and was also rewarded at the Exposition Universelle of 1889 and 1900. In 1883, he became a Professor of Sculpture at Germain Pilon's School, and in 1906, Valton was awarded the Legion of Honor. He died in Chinon in 1918. Measures: 12.5" W x 6.5" D x 11" H.
