Diane La Chasseresse

For BADA Week 2023 Garret & Hurst have chosen to feature Mathurin Moreau's magnificent sculpture, Diane La Chasseresse.

Born in Dijon in 1822, Moreau was from a family of sculptors which included his father,Jean-Baptiste Moreau, and brothers Hippolyte and Auguste.

Having entered the École des Beaux Arts, Paris in 1841, Mathurin was a runner up in the prestigious 1842 Prix de Rome with his sculpture Diodemus removing the Palladium.

Notable works by Moreau include Cologne, a limestone sculpture for the facade of the Gard du Nord station, and L'Océanie, a grand scale bronze created for the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1878, which now resides in the Courtyard of the Musée d'Orsay.
