Jules Dalou (1838–1902) became one of the busiest and most successful sculptors of public monuments in late nineteenth-century Paris. Several years after 1883, when Rodin modeled his portrait, the two sculptors ended their long friendship with mutual hard feelings over the commissioning of a monument to Victor Hugo planned for the Panthéon.
