François Pompon (1855-1933)
Pompon was born in Saulieu in the French Burgundy region as the son of a furniture maker. When he was 15 years old, he was employed by an undertaker in Dijon, where he learned the basics of sculpting. During his training he met Pierre-Louis Rouillard, the sculptor of animal figures, which perhaps became the source of inspiration for his work for which he became famous much later. His big break occurred when he was already 67 years old, with the exhibition of ‘l ‘Ours blanc’ (White Polar Bear) in plaster at the ‘Salon des artistes Français’. Successful exhibitions followed in Tokyo and Osaka, and the now famous polar bear is made of marble.
