'Gorille enlevant une femme' was executed as a statue in 1887 and is held at the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nantes. Emmanuel Frémiet (1824-1910) was a French sculptor. He is famous for his sculpture of Joan Arc in Paris, and the monument to Ferdinand de Lesseps in Suez. From 1855 to 1859 he was engaged on a series of military statuettes for Napoleon III, none of which have survived. He produced his equestrian statue of Napoleon I in 1868, and of Louis d'Orleans in 1869. This statue of the Gorilla carrying off a Woman won him a medal of honour at the Salon in 1887.
