Bouret, born in Paris in 1833, studied in the studio of sculptor Louis Buhot and was accepted as an exhibitor at the Paris Salon from 1875 to 1903. Specializing in female allegorical figures that were cast in large editions, his work is evocative of the decorative school of French female draped bronzes that prevailed at the end of the nineteenth century.
