A lovely bronze sculpture entitled "La Reve," or The Dream, was signed "Hip. Moreau" about 1900. Hippolyte Francois Moreau (1832-1927) was one of the famous French family of sculptors. He studied in Paris with his brothers, and won medals at the World's Fair in 1878 and 1900. His work is in museums across the world, with the largest collection at the Museum of Fine Arts in Dijon, France.
This statue has a brass plate, "Salon des Beaux Arts" and a foundry stamp, "Society of Bronzes, Paris."
