Antonin Mercié

Antonin Mercié (French, 1845-1916) created some of the most enduringly popular sculptures of the19th century.  

He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris under the great sculptor Alexandre Falguière and was sufficiently accomplished to win the Grand Prix de Rome in 1868 at the age of 23.  His first great successes were the David Vainqueur and Gloria Victis which received the Medal of Honor of the Paris Salon.  Both of these sculptures are now displayed in museum collections all over the world.

Mercié's style remained remarkably consistent throughout his career.  His work is characterized by a sense of elegance and sensuality, modernizing the classical forms of Florentine sculpture.  His sensitive interpretations that made him a sensation in 19th century France continue to impress today.
