Pierre-Eugène-Émile Hébert

Pierre-Eugène-Émile Hébert (1823 – 1893) was a renowned French sculptor. Son of sculptor Pierre Hébert, he studied both with his father and with Jean-Jacques Feuchère (1807–1852). Émile Hébert participated in the Salon de Paris and the Exposition Universelle in 1855. His “La Comédie and Le Drame” was created for the vaudeville theater in Paris, and was awarded a Class Medal in 1872. Émile Hébert was one of the few sculptors to work with the renowned bronzier Georges Servant, and their artistic collaboration resulted in pieces of the Neo-Grecian and Egyptian Revival style.
