Charles Valton was born in Pau, France on 1/26/1861.  A student of both Antoine Louis Barye and Emmanuel Fremiet, he studied at the famous Paris zoological garden, "Jardin des Plantes".

He made his debut at the Paris Salon in 1868.

By 1914, over seventy of his models were exhibited at the Salon.  In 1875, he became a member of the Society of French Artists.  He received medals for his sculpture in 1875, 1885, as well as at the Exposition Universelle of 1889 and 1900.

In 1883, he became a Professor of Sculpture at the Germain Pilon School.  In 1906, Valton received the Cross of the Legion d'Honneur.
