Jules-Félix Coutan is considered to be one of the most gifted French sculptors and designers of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The full range of Coutan's aptitude is best reflected through his larger compositions as illustrated in this example. This dynamic bronze depiction of Music exhibits incredible proportion and elegant fluidity, reflecting Coutan's unique interpretation and reverence for the classical taste that propelled his international reputation.

Circa 1880

92" high

Jules-Félix Coutan (1848-1939) enjoyed a distinguished career as a master sculptor and designer highlighted by numerous accolades. He studied under the renowned Pierre-Jules Cavelier at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In 1872, Coutan won the Prix de Rome and spent the next four years at the Académie de France. His brilliant debut at the Salon of 1876 won him the first class medal and solidified his reputation as a premier French sculptor. His significant contribution to the decoration of the 1889 Exposition Universelle earned Coutan a gold medal and the Grand Prix d'Honneur the following year for his monumental portico for the Sèvres Pavillion de la Manufacture Nationale. Known as a master of public statuary, Coutan executed his most prestigious works that can still be seen at the Bibliothèque Nationale, the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris and in New York's Grand Central Station.
