Étienne-Jules Ramey (24 May 1796 – 29 October 1852), called Ramey fils, was a French sculptor.
Ramey was born in Paris. The pupil of his father, Claude Ramey (1754–1838), he trained in the studio of Pierre Cartellier, won the Prix de Rome in sculpture, 1815, with the subject, equally classicizing and sentimental, Ulysses recognized by his dog, and collaborated with David d'Angers on the sculptures for the triumphal arch at Marseille, the Porte d'Aix, 1828 to 1839.
He worked in partnership with Augustin-Alexandre Dumont and taught at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. One of his pupils there was the Belgian sculptor Guillaume Geefs; another was Jean-Joseph Perraud. He died in Paris.
His careful, mannered drawings appear on the market from time to time.
