Jean-Baptiste Vietty was a French sculptor and archaeologist born in 1787 in Amplepuis, located in the Rhône-Alpes region of France. The son of a decorative plaster worker of Italian origin, Vietty worked in the ateliers of the painter Pierre Cogell, the sculptor and medalist Pierre Cartellier, and the neoclassical sculptor Joseph Chinard. Vietty was placed in command of the sculptures being executed for the stock exchange of Saint Petersburg. At the Salon of 1822 he showed a plaster of the Nymphe de la Seine. At the Salon of 1824 he received the médaille d’or for a Homère méditant l’Iliade. His bronze version of the Medici Apollino in Florence is a fountain figure in the garden of Lyon's Musée des Beaux-Arts.
