Louis-Philippe Hébert
Birth: Jan. 27, 1850
Quebec, Canada
Death: Jun. 13, 1917
Quebec, Canada

Sculptor, Educator. Louis-Philippe Hébert, son of Théophile Hébert and Julie Bourgeois, was baptized on February 3, 1850 at Saint Norbert, Arthabaska, Québec, Canada. The French Canadian left home in 1869 and spent a year in Rome. Upon his return, he apprenticed with Quebec sculptor Napoléon Bourassa. He stayed for six years, and his art soon eclipsed that of his mentor. Hébert then spent an extended period of time in Paris, further developing his abilities. He established a successful studio in Paris where he created all of his major pieces, including those that had been commissioned from Canada. Hébert sculpted monuments, busts, statues, and commemorative medals in a variety of materials. His subjects included historic figures such as Queen Victoria, King Edward VII, Sir John Alexander Macdonald, Sir George-Étienne Cartier, Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve, Jeanne Mance, Madeleine de Verchères, Lambert Closse, Alexander Mackenzie, Octave Crémazie, Bishop Ignace Bourget, and John Young. He also taught at the Conseil des Arts et Manufactures in Montreal. Hébert became a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 1880. Other awards and recognitions included the Medal of Confederation in 1894, Chevalier of the French Legion of Honour in 1901, Great Britain's Companion of Saint Michael and Saint George in 1903, and Chevalier of Saint Gregoire le Grand in 1903. The Prix Philippe Hébert has been awarded to outstanding artists in Quebec by the Saint Jean Baptiste Society of Montréal since 1971. Louis-Philippe Hébert was buried at the Nôtre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery in Montreal on June 16, 1917. (bio by: Anne Philbrick)
