Life of ANTOINE ETEX


 Advertisements

 
  French sculptor, painter, etcher, architect and writer. The son of a decorative sculptor, he entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Paris, in 1824 as a pupil of Charles Dupaty (1771-1825), moving in 1825 to the studio of James Pradier. Ingres also took an interest in his education, and Etex’s gratitude towards him and Pradier was later expressed in projects for monuments to them (that to Pradier not executed, that in bronze to Ingres erected Montauban, Promenade des Carmes, 1868-71). He is best known as a sculptor. Among his works are two large groups, Resistance and Peace, on the Arc de Triomphe de l’toile, Paris; Gricault’s tomb; and the monument to Ingres at Montauban.
