  Francois Rude - LoveToKnow 1911
FRANCOIS RUDE (1784-1855), French sculptor, was born at Dijon on the 4th of June 1784.

 March of the Volunteers of 1792 (detail) by RUDE, François
Rude takes his place in the tradition of the Burgundian school.
Along with other sculptors, he worked on the decoration of the Arc de Triomphe at the Étoile in Paris; for the east face of the arch he carved the stone relief representing the March of the Volunteers of 1792, also known as La Marseillaise.
In this epic work rooted in popular sentiment and patriotism, the shouting figure of the Marseillaise is incomparable for its passion and movement; Rude used his wife as a model, crying to her "Louder!

 Biography of RUDE, François in the Web Gallery of Art
He was a fervent admirer of Napoleon Bonaparte and his emotionally charged work expresses the martial spirit of the Napoleonic era more fully than that of any other sculptor.
On his return to Paris in 1827 he became highly successful with public monuments, most notably his celebrated high relief on the Arc de Triomphe, Departure of the Volunteers in 1792, popularly known as The Marseillaise (1833-36).
None of Rude's other works matches the fire, dynamism, and heroic bravura of this glorification of the French Revolution, but he created another strikingly original work in his monument The Awakening of Napoleon (1845-47) in a park at Fixin, near his native Dijon, which shows the emperor casting off his shroud.

 The Pygmalion Syndrome Art Gallery: Neapolitan Fisherboy by Francois Rude
He was the principal French sculptor of the Romantic period whose most important work is the heroic relief of the Departure of the Volunteers of 1792 (‘The Marseillaise’) on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris (1833-6).
His first major success on his return to France was at the 1831 Salon with his plaster Neapolitan Fisherboy, which the State bought in marble (1831-3, Paris, Louvre) and which earned him the cross of the Legion d’Honneur.
Although his work was firmly grounded in his Neoclassical training, and despite the popular success of The Marseillaise, Rude’s sculpture was considered too fervently Romantic for the conservative Académie and he was never elected an Academician.

 The New York Review of Books: The Permanent Revolution
In 1849 the young sculptor Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux, who was later to execute the famous group La Danse for the façade of the Paris Opera, regretfully abandoned his studies with François Rude, the greatest of French romantic sculptors (and a major figure in Hugh Honour's Romanticism).
Carpeaux went to work with Francisque Duret, a less inspired teacher, but one much more representative of the doctrines of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts.
He gave the reasons for his break with Rude in a letter to a friend:

 Gustave Wappers: Belgian Romantic   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
Gustave Wappers (1807-74) became famous for his 1834 picture Episode During the Belgian Revolution of 1830, which commemorated Belgian resistance to the Dutch invaders during the revolution for independence.
This rather theatrical reenactment of a moment of revolutionary fervor parallels Eugène Delacroix's painting Liberty Leading the People (1830, Louvre) and Francois Rude's sculpture on the face of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, La Marseilles, or The Departure of the Volunteers of 1793 (1833).
Although it is a contemporary scene, the staged quality and emotionalism mark it as a Romantic work.
