Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux is a French sculptor, painter and designer, born May 11, 1827 in Valenciennes (a small town in the north of France near the borders with Belgium) and died October 12, 1875 in Courbevoie (Small town in the northern suburbs -west of Paris), at the age of 48. J-B Carpeaux is famous above all as a sculptor-modeler (more than a painter). He used clay from which he took several sketches of his great works. He had edited several versions of his works to take advantage of the art market which was very lively in the mid-19th century.
