“Henri Louis Levasseur was a French sculptor best known for his Art Nouveau depictions of historic figures, mythological figures such as Diana (1900), and religious themes. His sculptures are composed in a realistic manner, often including painstakingly detailed, draped fabrics that appear to be captured mid-movement. Born on April 16, 1853 in Paris, France, Levasseur went on to study with Auguste Dumont, Gabriel Jules Thomas, and E. Planche. He won many awards during his lifetime, at both the Salon des Artistes Français and the Art Exposition in Paris. Today, Levasseur’s works are in the collections of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow, the Grohmann Museum at the Milwaukee School of Engineering, and the Columbia Museum of Art at the University of South Carolina, among others. He died in 1934 in Paris, France.”
