Carpeaux Creative Fever

French language

Born in Valenciennes, Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux received his first training in drawing and modeling in Paris in 1842: it was the Petite École, then the École des Beaux-Arts in François Rude's studio. In 1854, he won the Prix de Rome and left for the Villa Médicis to study the great masters, but also to observe nature and walk the streets of Rome. There he sculpted his Shell Fisherman and worked feverishly on his Ugolin group. Introduced to the imperial court, Carpeaux received prestigious commissions: the decoration of the Pavilion of Flora, the fountain of the Observatory or the Dance for the Opera. This group will unleash the wrath of public opinion; obscenity is shouted, a bottle of ink is thrown in the night of August 27th 1869 .
Laure de Margerie restores the life of this passionate artist. Ugolin devours his children, Carpeaux consumes his life. His illness: the fever to create in a permanent tension in the service of the work.
