Another member of the group of young graduates of the Ècole des Beaux-Arts, Jean-Louis Grégoire was a native of Paris. He entered the Ècole and made his debut at the Paris Salon in 1867, joining the swelling ranks of young sculptors specializing in female allegorical figure groups. Other examples of his work include bronze editions of The Dance, Psyche, Cleopatra, and Allegro.
