Aimé-Jules Dalou

Dalou, Aimé-Jules (ĕmāˈ-zhül dälōˈ) [key], 1838–1902, French sculptor. He was popular under the Third Republic. Dalou studied with Carpeaux and was later exiled (1871–79) to England for his revolutionary sentiments. He taught in London. His best-known works are his Triumph of the Republic (Place de la Nation, Paris), his reliefs for the chamber of deputies, and his Silenus and monument to Delacroix (both: Luxembourg Gardens). His work was baroque in its sources although his style is often considered naturalistic. Dalou was particularly skilled in portraiture.
