Trained under the watchful eye of esteemed sculptor Francois Jouffroy, Falguiere's career dappled the horizons of independent artistry in Paris. His work, known for its striking naturalness, was widely acclaimed and rewarded. In 1859, Falguiere won the Rome Prize from the French Academy; a hallmark achievement that propelled his offerings into the Paris Salon in 1864.
