Chavalliaud had been a pupil of the renowned and influential French sculptor Francois Jouffroy, and of Roubeaud II (see Cavanagh 325). He moved to England at the beginning of the nineties and stayed for fifteen years. Amongst other public statues, he was also responsible for the famous one of Mrs Siddons as the Tragic Muse (Paddington Green, London, 1897). He occasionally worked for (or with) the firm of Farmer and Brindley.
