George Recipon (1860-1920) was a well-known French sculptor. He studied with Dumont and Francais, and exhibited at the Salon in Paris from 1879. In 1888 he became a member of the Artistes de Francais and then exhibited work at the Salon, where he won a medal in 1890 and a first class medal in 1901. He also had honorable mentions, respectively a silver medal at the exhibitions of 1889 and 1900 and received the "Legion d'Honneur" in the latter year. He was not only a sculptor, but also a painter. He carried out classical subjects, in particular the 2 bronze Quadrigae at the Palace for Fine Arts and the Nymphs representing the Seine and the Neva on the Pont Alexandria III in Paris.
