Carvin, Lois AlbertBorn in Paris during the 19th century - predominantly an animalier sculptor. It seems there were two Carvin animalier artists working at around the same time, one was Lois and the other Auguste. The work of Lois Carvin was more naturalistic as he was earlier than Auguste Carvin whos work was very deco and stylised. He studied under Gardet and Fremiet and exhibited at the Paris Salon from 1894 - 1933. His latter work concentrated on genre compositions.
