Biography :
Georges Gardet (1863-1939) was a French animal sculptor. He was the son of the sculptor Joseph Gardet and the brother of the sculptor Joseph-Antoine Gardet. He studied at the Beaux-Arts School in Paris in the workshops of Aimé Millet and Emmanuel Frémiet. Gardet quickly revealed himself endowed with a great skill in the realization of animal subjects which remained his favorite subjects.

Georges Gardet attended in 1883 the Salon of Paris from the age of twenty and won his first success in 1891 with "Drama in the desert". His talent attracted him many commissions from amateurs who wished to keep effigies of their pets or decorate the gardens and parks of their homes. He created plaster models often worked in bronze as well as marbles. Some of his works were replicated with porcelain biscuits by Sèvres. Gardet was promoted to the rank of Officer of the Legion of Honor in 1900. He was a member of the Academy of Fine Arts and the Society of French Artists.
