Biography :
Louis Sosson was a French ivory sculptor who carried on his artistic activity from 1905 to 1930. Little information about his life has survived. The date of birth and the date of Louis Sosson's death are unknown. He lived from 1914 to 1918, rue Turenne in Paris, number 50. Based on his artistic life, we can locate his date of birth between 1870 and 1880 and his date of death between 1930 and 1950. Most of his works date from the Art Nouveau and Art Deco period. He mainly made chryselephantine statuettes, ivory and bronze, representing pretty women, often in show, and dancers, as well as a skier, characters in Dutch clothes and some children. His works were often edited by the Etling Foundry.

In 1909, Edmond Laurent Etling opened a store in Paris, at 29 rue de Paradis. In this shop, you could buy very luxurious art objects, mainly bronze, ivory, ceramic or glass. Etling represented world-renowned sculptors and artists such as Demeter Chiparus, Louis Sosson, Claire Jean Roberte Colinet, Lucille Sevin and her husband Jean Théodore Delabassé and Maurice Guiraud-Rivière. These artists were then all eminent members of modern French art of the time.
