    Found it strange that this wasn't a religious theme piece and haven't been able to find more like it, I have compiled a list if other sculptures he has done below.

    Lambert Joseph Piedboeuf ( born February 3, 1863 in Aachen , † 29 November 1950 in Bad Reichenhall ) was a German sculptor who dealt almost exclusively with religious themes . He is regarded as " the most distinguished Aachen sculptor of the century " and also acted in a neighboring country.

    Life:
    Piedboeuf Lambert , son of Hippolytus Piedboeuf upholsterer and the Carolina Elizabeth Linden, was a pupil of the Aachen sculptor Gottfried goddess (1830-1879) and after a year of cooperation at the Cologne cathedral workshop volunteer at the Aachen sculptor Johann Lorenz Oprée ( 1846-1900 ) . By 1887, he started his own business . In addition, he worked as a professor at the School of Applied Arts Aachen.

    Lambert Piedbeoufs grave figures and reliefs include 1919 the grave jewelry catalog of the Württemberg metal factory. These works were carried out as galvanoplastics . In his spare time he devoted himself to Aachen vernacular language and also belonged to the board of the association " Aachen dialect e.V. ".

    His work:
    Aachen: Marian column, design of the Calvary of St. Nicholas, a Crucifixion, a Pietà in St. Elizabeth, an enthroned Madonna and Child with a figure of Christ in the Sacred Heart Church, grave monuments to the pastor of St. Paul and the Fam. Heinen in Aachen Campo Santo in the Western Cemetery II in Aachen and sculpture in Holy Cross and eight statues on the facade of City Hall:

      Hi Pacificus,

      I recently bought a mixed lot in an auction in Ireland which included a very similar bronze bust to the one you have posted on. The only difference is that instead of Wagner it’s of Beethoven and is also signed by L. Piedbouef but without a date.

      I have been searching on the Internet for any information on the bust but I hadn’t been able to find anything of interest and was starting to lose hope. However I saw your post and your biography on Mr. Piedbouef and his work was very informative.

      I’d be very interested to know if you (or indeed if any else) have been able to track down any further information on the bust. I will continue with my research and if I find anything useful I will of course post.

      Regards,

      Great! Good to know there are more out there, I suspect he would have made Mozart, Schubert, Mendelssohn and Haydn as well. I also added a bit more to the main text about Lambert's life.
