Jean-Joseph Perraud [1819-1876]


Biography
———————
Jean-Joseph Perraud was a French academic sculptor working in a Neoclassic and Romantic style.


Perraud was born to peasant parents in Monay, France on April 26, 1819.


At age fifteen he was apprenticed to a cabinetmaker and ornamentalist in Salins and then Pontarlier. By 1840, Perraud entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Lyon. In 1841, Perraud left for Paris to study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts under Jules Ramey (1796-1852) and Augustin Dumont (1801-1884).


In 1847, Perraud won the Grand Prix de Rome for his sculpture Télémaque rapportant à Phalante l'urne renfermant les cendres d'Hippias [Telemachus reporting to Phalante with the urn containing the ashes of Hippias], a bas-relief now in the Musée des Beaux-Arts Lons-le-Saunier. Winning the prize allowed Perraud to move to Rome and reside at the Villa Medici.


Returning to France in 1853, he exhibited regularly at the salons and at the World exhibitions. He receives commissions from the city of Paris and the State (Tour Saint-Jacques, construction site of the new Louvre). At the Universal Exhibition of 1855 Perraud won a first class medal and then at the Legion of Honor in 1857. In 1865 he was made a member of the Institute.


Jean-Joseph Perraud died on November 2, 1876.
