Aimé-Jules Dalou

French 1838-1902 

Aimé-Jules Dalou commenced his artistic journey as a student at the École des Beaux-Arts. He exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1861, which lead him to cultivate his signature sculptural style characterised by the female form. During his London sojourn in the wake of the Franco-Prussian War, he taught at the Lambeth Art School, significantly influencing a cohort of notable English artists, including William Goscombe-John, George Frampton, and Harry Bates. His presence in Britain during 1871 marked a pivotal moment in the evolution of sculpture in the country, akin to the impact of Claude Monet, James Tissot, Camille Pissarro, Alfred Sisley, and Andre Derain on British painting in the late 19th century, as underscored by the Tate Britain exhibition, Impressionists in London (2017–2018). Dalou’s artistic legacy inspired many British sculptors and the formation of the New Sculpture Movement. Prominent museum collections include Musée d’Orsay and Petit Palais in Paris, as well as abroad, including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
