Jacques Augustin Dieudonné, an important French sculptor of the 19th century, was known for his skilful craftsmanship and his ability to capture the essence of his models. Dieudonné trained his artistic talent at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He quickly gained recognition for his exceptional sculptural works, which often depicted prominent figures of his time. His meticulous attention to detail and expressive realism cemented his reputation, earning him numerous prestigious commissions throughout his career.

This marble bust depicts the Marshal of France Sylvain Charles Valée. It shows the esteemed military commander with a commanding presence befitting his status and achievements. Valée is depicted in his military uniform, which has been elaborated down to the smallest detail to emphasise the subtleties of his clothing. Three Iron Crown medals are emblazoned on his chest, symbolising his bravery and outstanding service.

The cloak draped loosely over Valée’s right shoulder adds to the dynamic composition of the statue and conveys a sense of movement and realism. The folds of the cloak and the texture of the uniform are rendered with exceptional precision, demonstrating Dieudonné’s masterful handling of marble.

With this bust, Dieudonné not only commemorates Maréchal Valée’s significant services to France, but also depicts the dignity and strength of a military hero. The sculpture is a testament to Dieudonné’s artistic skill and his ability to immortalise the essence of his figures in marble.
