Amis-Jules Dalou (1838-1902) was a Sculptor. Born in Paris he attended the École des Beaux-Arts, where he met Alphonse Legros and Fantin-Latour, amongst others. He may also have known L’Hermitte and J. M. Cazin who also studied there.
Dalou was a socialist and the son of a glove maker. He was a curator at the Louvre under Gustav Courbet but came to London in the 1871, staying until 1879. In London he taught at the South Kensington School of Art and Design. Many of his terracotta works are now held by the V&A including those from the Ionides and Staats Forbes collections.
The Christie’s sale of the Hill collection lists five terracotta statuettes by Dalou of ‘Une Boulognaise’.
