FRENCH, Daniel Chester, sculptor, born in Exeter, N. H., 9 June 1850. He studied under Dr. William Rimmer in Boston, and in the studio of Thomas Ball, at Florence, Italy, but returned to the United States in 1876 and opened a studio in Washington. He was a member of the art club of that City, and executed a number of small groups in parian and plaster. The most popular of these works are two groups of dogs, " The Owl in Love," and "Dick Swiveller and the Marchioness." In 1878 he returned to Florence, and has since resided in that City. His sculptures include "The Minute Man of Concord," an heroic statue in bronze, which was unveiled in Concord in 1875; "The May Queen" ; "Elsie Venner" ; "Peace and War," a colossal group, which is now in the customhouse in St. Louis;" The Waking of Endymion"; and a life-size statue of Governor Chase, of Michigan, for the National memorial gallery at Washington.
