Hippolyte Camille Lamy

Hippolyte Camille Lamy was the fourth child of Joseph Alfred, known as ‘Lamy Père’, and was born in 1875.  At the age of fifteen he became an apprentice in his father’s shop, and then his assistant from 1895. From 1905, he gradually broadened the shape of his heads and widened the throat of his frogs, such that his work became distinguishable from his father’s. Towards the end of his life he suffered from poor eyesight and his work became less precise. He died in 1942 on the outskirts of Paris.
