André Abbal, (1876-1953)
Sculptor, student of the Toulousains Alexandre Falguière and Antonin Mercié. School of Fine Arts of Paris, Abbal exposes from 1896 to the Salon of the French Artists. After the war of 1914-1918, it is most often found at the Salon d'Automne. This adept of the direct size obtains important official orders for the palace of Chaillot, the monuments to the dead of Toulouse and Moissac. The town of Carbonne (Haute-Garonne), which has its Moissonneuse on one of its squares, has dedicated a museum to him.
