The ''animalier'' sculptor Alfred Jacquemart studied painting under Paul Delaroche and sculpture under Klagmann at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. Exhibiting at the Salon from 1847 - 1879, he won medals in 1857 and 1865. The Duc d'Orleans, eldest son of King Louis-Philippe, commissioned from him several large animal sculptures for installation in public squares and streets of Paris, including the sphinxes in the Place du Chatelet, the bronze griffons in front of the Fontaine Saint-Michel and the lions before the Hotel de Ville. Jacquemart was made a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor in 1870 and his work is held in museums throughout France
