Of Danish origin, he succeeds Charles Wagner, whose workshop he directed from 1841. The sources of inspiration come from the Middle Ages or the Renaissance, accommodating in his own way the spirit of Romanticism. Among other things, loves were often illustrated, simple messengers of Love. Reference: A famous adornment with love (bracelet, brooch and earrings), Musée d’Orsay. Paris.
