Albert Gaston Guilloux was born on October 9, 1871 in Rouen. He died in 1952 in Paris.
Born into a family of sculptors, he was a pupil of Coutan and then of Falguière. He was the brother of Alphonse and Benjamin Charles Guilloux, and the uncle of Charles Aimé Guilloux. A classical sculptor, he won a second Grand Prix of Rome with “La Goule.” He exhibited in Paris at the Salon des Artists Français, where he received a first-class medal in 1906. He received the Chenavard Prize in 1897 and the National Prize in 1903. Among his works is the bronze medallion of the painter Lebourg, of whom he was the godson and of whom he became the brother-in-law. He was also the sculptor of the expressive statue “L'Homme prenant conscience de sa force” and of the tomb of Cardinal Thomas in the Rouen Cathedral, which was destroyed in 1940. Perhaps his most striking work is “Ève retrouvant le corps d'Abel.” Under the influence of Lebourg, he took up painting, which he practised in his small summer house, where he had retired, at Saint-Vaast-d'Équiqueville, near Saint-Nicolas d'Alliermont and Dieppe.
