Sylvain Kinsburger (1885-1935) was a renowned French sculptor. He was a student of Auguste Dumont and Gabriel-Jules Thomas at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Kinsburger exhibited a large figure entitled Le Courtisan at the Salon of 1911. A large plaster of his Dreaming acquired by the Salon of 1891 was formerly at the town hall of Villefranche-sur-Saône.
A drawing of this grouping is preserved in the department of graphic arts of the Louvre museum in Paris.
