Lit: Picault, prolific sculptor has been very successful with his allegories, patriotic subjects and other heroic figures. He presented his works regularly at the Salon from 1863. He used many different foundries for casting his sculptures, all of which were exhibited as bronzes, many being cast by Susse Freres, Houdebine, and Colin. Bronzes by Picault feature in the collections of the Museum of Chambery, ‘Le Semur d’Ides’; The Museum of Clemont Ferrard, ‘Hebe’ and The Museum of Mauberge, ‘Le Devoir’.
