This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Seeking work in Boston as early as 1818, J. B. Binon was a French sculptor of portrait busts who was disappointed because there seemed to be little work for him in Massachusetts.   It is likely he was the first European-trained sculptor to arrive in Boston.  John Adams advised him that the United States was not ready for sculpture, but he did get a few commissions including a portrait bust of General Henry Dearborn, prominent Bostonian horticulturalist and architectural designer of the Forest Hills Cemetery.

Binon also taught modeling to the young Horatio Greenough[1805-1852], who became a successful sculptor and whose study in Italy inaugurated the professional training of American sculptors abroad.

Wendell Garrett, Neo-Classicism in America Inspiration and Innovation, 1810-1840
