Georges Gardet (1863-1939)
 
Georges Gardet was born in Paris on 10/11/1863 and died in 1939.  He is considered one of the greatest of the later period of the French school of Animalier sculptors.  The son of sculptor Joseph Gardet, he was a pupil at the Ecole des Beaux Arts under Aime`and Emanuel Fremiet.  Gardet first exhibited at the Salon des Artistes in 1883.  His first major success at the Paris Salon was in 1887, with the group Panther and Python, where he subsequently exhibited on a regular basis.  He was awarded the Knight of the Legion of Honour,  and won the Grand Prix at the Exhibition Universale in 1900. He was a member of the Society of French Artists and the Academy of Fine Arts.

Gardet worked in marble, onyx and bronze. The signature "G. GARDET" was hand printed in capital letters on his sculptures.  Much of his bronze sculpture was edited, ( cast ), by E. Siot-Decauville. Many replicas were produced in Sèvres porcelain.

His subjects were often big game animals in their natural habitat.  The sculptures reflect strength,  individuality and action.  Gardet additionally sculpted domestic small animals.  Among his famous public works are Bison Attacked by a Jaguar, ( Laval ), the lions at the stairways at the Alexandre III Bridge, Fighting Panthers, ( Sèvres porcelain, Luxembourg Museum, Paris ) and Two Panthers, ( Simu Museum, Bucharest ).
