Auguste Moreau (1834 - 1917) was active/lived in France. Auguste Moreau is known for Art nouveau allegorical figure sculpture. Auguste Moreau was born in Paris in 1834, the youngest son of sculptor and painter Jean-Baptiste Moreau. He studied with his father and also under Aimé Millet, Augustin Drumont and Jean Thomas. Each of the three Moreau brothers - Hippolyte, Marthurin and Auguste - have become renowned for the quality and the beauty of their figurative sculpture.

In 1861, Auguste made his debut at the Salon where he would exhibit regularly until 1913. His subjects were primarily young maidens sensuously clad in swirling diaphanous dress and usually decorated with flowers and birds or allegorical and genre scenes incorporating cupids and young children. His style was realistic and graceful, revealing his relation to the other members of the Moreau family. His compositions encapsulate a feeling of innocence whilst incorporating an air of mischievous game.
