About Paul Wayland Bartlett

1865-1925

The US-American Paul Wayland Bartlett came to Paris at the age of 9, where he studied under Emmanuel Frémiet and Pierre Cavelier at the École des Beaux-Arts. Here he also met Auguste Rodin, in whose studio he worked and by whom he was decisively influenced. At the age of 15 he was already allowed to exhibit a bust at the Paris Salon, at the age of 22 he won one of the coveted medals there and at 24 he even became a member of the Salon jury himself.

Among his best-known works are monumental pieces such as the equestrian statue of Lafayette which is located in the Place du Carrousel in Paris and the expressive statues of Columbus and Michelangelo which stand in the Library of Congress in Washington D.C. Bartlett, however, remained loyal to Paris throughout his life, until his death in 1925.
