Jean Jules ALLASSEUR (1818-1903).
A French sculptor (born in Paris on September 1, 1818, died in Paris on March 23, 1903), Allasseur worked at the beginning of his career for David d'Angers. He entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts on October 7, 1835.
He began at the Salon from 1846. A few years later, suffering from an eye disease, became almost blind and must reduce his activity as a sculptor.
He executed statues for the church of Saint-Étienne-du-Mont and the Hôtel de Ville. He is also indebted for busts decorating the Cherbourg theater.
He obtained a second-class medal in 1853, a first-class medal in 1859 and a silver medal at the World's Fair
He continued to exhibit at the Salon until 1870. He returned to the Salon of 1888, with Rameau (monumental statue in marble of 1 90 m).
He was decorated with the Légion d'honneur in August 1867. He was a member of the Société des Artistes français.
