Claudius Marioton (2 February 1844[2]-1919) was a French sculptor.

Eros Making the World Turn According to His Pleasure (Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Copenhagen)
The eldest child of the cook Jean Marioton and the metal-browner Catherine Magister, Claudius had two younger brothers who were also artists - the sculptor Eugène Marioton and the painter Jean Alfred Marioton. He exhibited at every Paris Salon from 1873 onwards, winning an honorary mention each year from 1879 to 1882, a 3rd class medal in 1883 and a 2nd class medal (outside the competition) in 1885. His first exhibit was 'Le Plaisir' (Pleasure; plaster #6514) and Love Making the World Turn According to His Pleasure (bronze #6515) at the 1879 Salon. He also won laureates in the Willemsens and Crozatier competitions in 1876 and 1879 respectively. In 1886, he decorated Carrier-Belleuse's cup (Musée d'Orsay)
He won two gold medals and one silver medal at the 1889 Exposition Universelle. He was on the sculpture jury at the 'salon des Champs-Élysées' in 1893 and 1894. In 1894 he produced 'Byzance' (Byzantium) in gold and silver, The Satyr, a steel bas-relief with lapis lazuli inlay, and 'L'offensive et Défensive' (The Offensive and the Defensive, a silver, gold and colour dyptych[4]). He won the collective firsts prize at the Lyon Exposition Universelle in 1894 and the following year was made a knight of the Ordre national de la Légion d'honneur.[5] He was also a member of the overseeing committee of the École Boulle and director of the 'école de dessin de modelage et de ciselure de la réunion des fabricants de bronze' in Paris.
