Eugéne Marioton was born in Paris on April 7th of 1857, brother to the likewise famous sculptor Claudius Marioton. They enjoyed strong reputations and careers, Eugéne’s stretching over a fifty year period with his debut at the Salon des Artistes Français in Paris in 1882 where he continued to exhibit regularly through 1922.  Both he and his brother studied under Augustin Alexandre Dumont, and he further was pupil to Thomas and Bonnassieux.  He won bronze medals at the 1889 and 1900 Exposition Universelle and a traveling scholarship in 1888.  He specialized in small bronze works, mostly figural studies that were academic and executed in the Romantic taste.  Of these, a majority were cast by the E. Colin and Siot-Decauville foundries, both prolific and highly skilled firms.
