Julien Caussé


Julien Caussé was born on January 27, 1869 in Bourges, France. He was the son of the sculptor Auguste Caussé and worked as a sculptor from 1890 until his death. He studied with Alexandre Falguière, and his works were exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français from 1888 to 1913, receiving honorable mentions in 1882 and 1900 and a third degree bronze medal in 1893. He also took part in the World’s Fair of 1900.

Over the course of his career, he produced hundreds of Art Nouveau works of art. His work included solid bronze sculptures and mixed media pieces that included bronze sculptures with glass, wire and stone decorations. His mixed media works also included sculptures designed for more practical purposes such as lamps and clocks. While the subjects of his works were primarily women, both nude and clothed, he is also known to have produced a limited number of pieces with male themes. He is listed in the Benezit Dictionary of Artists, and his sculpture “La Musique” is illustrated in the fourth volume of the Berman Book of Bronzes.
