Francisque Joseph was born in Paris in 1804 and was both the son and pupil of Francois Joseph Duret the elder (1732-1816). He enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in 1818 where he studied under Bosio and exhibited at the salon from 1831 to 1863 winning a first class medal in 1855. He is best known for his monuments and statuary which were executed in stone and marble but it was his bronze output which included numerous bronzes illustrating Neapolitan life.
French circa 1850.
