Le Pecheur Statue By Charles Gumery

So this statue of The Fisherman was produced by Charles Gumery who was born in Paris in 1827, and studying to become a French sculptor at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, he was a pupil of Armand Toussaint.

Becoming a prominent sculptor during the Second Empire, he was commissioned by Charles Garnier to produce gilded statues for the Palais Garnier Opera House, along with other public commissions including some for the Palais du Louvre including Le Pecheur, plus Charles Gumery even taught at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, yet unfortunately he died in strange circumstances during the Paris Commune and the Siege of Paris in 1871.
