More information

Born in the Marais district of Paris, his name is often recorded as Auguste Préault by which he was known during his lifetime.

A student of David d'Angers, Préault first exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1833. He was not favorably looked upon by some of the artistic community's elite due to his outspokenness and because he was part of the circle of activists in the French Revolution of 1830. During that period of turmoil Préault's studio was vandalized and many of his plaster models were destroyed. As a result of these circumstances his work has been largely overshadowed by his contemporaries.


Antoine-Augustin Préault died in Paris in 1879 and was interred in the Père Lachaise Cemetery.
