Biography from Tajan, Paris:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Charles Henri Joseph Cordier was the unruly child of a family of Cambrai.  After mediocre studies, he studied the studio of sculptor Louis Bougron Lille.  He left for Paris in 1844 and joined the studio of François Rude in 1846.  This is where he met Seid Enkess, black freed slave who became his model.  He exhibited Enkess Seid's bust at the Salon. That was the beginning of his ethnographic work.

In 1854 he made his first trip to Algeria and brought "a fine collection of busts."  He became a noted sculptor, received official orders, and exhibited in Paris in the provinces and abroad.  He is the grandfather of Suzanne Drouet-Réveillaud.
