Biography from a third party submitted on 04/15/2008:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Jean Juge was born in Volvic, France in 1898.  He started as a student at the School of Architecture and Decorative Arts when he was 13 years old and apprenticed in sculpture for a company called Chantier Auteroche Pere et Fils, which specialized in Volvic stone quarrying.

He enlisted as a soldier during WW1.

From 1919 to 1920, he worked under the direction of sculptor Jean Boucher.  At about age 30,  he became the head of the company at Ecole Superieure des Beaux- Arts de Paris. 

Some of his works include:
Maternity (marble) at Musee du Luxembourg, Paris
American WW1 Monument at Montfaucon d'Argonne about 1925--the architect was John Russel Pope
Albert Ier of Belgium monument in Paris
The Brittany American Cemetery and Memorial (WW1) next to the village of St. James (Manche), about 20 km from Avranches.  These are sculpture groups that were designed by Lee Lawrie and executed by Juge.

He worked with sculptors Paul Belmondo, Jean Boucher, Grebert, Dampt, Martial, De Monard and others.  Jean Juge was commissioned to do statues and sculptures at cemeteries Normandy-- Lorraine--Epinal-- and a statue that sits on top of the Montfaucon WW1 monument in Paris.

He also did a lifesize white marble bust of Charles Lindbergh in 1944 when Lindbergh was 42 years old and sat for this bust.  Juge's link with Lindbergh is unclear.

Juge died in 1968.
