Jean Gautherin was born in Savault a hamlet of the Ouroux-en-Morvan commune in the Burgundy region of France in 1840. He was born into a family of peasant farmers and began carving sticks at an early age. With the help of a local patron and friend of his father he went to study in Paris at the Gobelins school for apprentices before being trained in the studio of Charles Gumery. In 1864, he enrolled into the École des Beaux-Arts and in 1865 he began exhibiting at the Paris Salon.
He won several medals and his marble sculpture of Saint Sebastien led to several commissions for monuments and sculptures including the City of Paris and the Cathedral of Marseille. In 1878 he was made a Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur. Gautherin died in 1890 aged only 49 after a sudden illness. Many of his works can still be found at various locations in Paris including the Champs-Elysées Palace and the Musée d'Orsay.
