The American Paul Wayland moved to Paris at the age of 9 where he studied in the École des Beaux-Arts (the School of Fine Arts) where he studied under the influence of Emmanuel Frémiet and Pierre Cavelier. Here he also met August Rodin. Later he worked in his studio and was strongly influenced by him. At the age of 15 he was allowed to exhibit a bust in the Paris salon, up to 22 he got a medal of honor and at 24 he became a member of the Salon jury himself.

Among his most famous works one can find such monumental works as the rider statue of Lafayette on the Place du Carrousel in Paris as well as the expressive statues of Columbus and Michelangelo in the Congress Library in Washington D.C. Bartlett spent most of his life in Paris, where he died in 1925.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.
