Charles Valton was born in the French Pyrenees but grew up in Paris, where he could be found in the Jardin des Plantes from an early age. This is probably where his interest in animals originated. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts with the famous French sculptor of animal sculptures Antoine-Louis Barye and with Emmanuel Frémiet.
