Pierre-Alexandre MORLON, sculptor and medalist, a student of Falguière and Mercié, began his career at the Salon de 1900, a member of the jury. He was awarded medals commemorating the war and the interallied medal of victory 1914-1918. His sculptures are of less allegorical order - nothing is as realistic as his Sea Wolf or his group of Vendanges. He carved several monuments to the dead. Medals in 1903, 1906, travel scholarship in 1910, gold medal in 1920, honor in 1926 and appointed Chevalier of the Legion of Honor. The Musée de la Monnaie in Paris and the Ghent Museum keep works by this artist.
