Paul Wayland BARTLETT (1865-1925) Paul Wayland Bartlett arrived in Paris in 1874, after having been trained at a very young age by his father, the sculptor Truman Bartlett in Boston. A pupil of the sculptor Pierre-Jules Cavelier, Bartlett was particularly influenced by the teaching of Emmanuel Frémiet, who was then teaching at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris. He exhibited at the Salon in 1880 and became a member of the jury in 1888. In the 1890s, Bartlett was Rodin's assistant and also trained with Jean Carriès. He created his own foundry and distinguished himself to a wider public when he exhibited his animal sculptures. Noticed on both sides of the Atlantic, Bartlett received numerous distinctions. He is solicited for several commissions, notably that of the Marquis de Lafayette, a gift from the United States on the occasion of the 1900 World's Fair. It was installed in 1907 until 1984 in the courtyard of the Carrousel before being relegated to Cours-La-Reine near the Grand Palais. A retrospective exhibition was devoted to him in 1929 at the Musée de l'Orangerie.
