François Cogné (10 August 1876 – 9 April 1952) was a French sculptor.[1] His work was part of the sculpture event in the art competition at the 1924 Summer Olympics.[2]

He created an equestrian statue of the first French résident général in Morocco, Hubert Lyautey.[3] It was first displayed at what in 1938 was Place Lyautey (now Muhammad V Square), though the statue is now kept within the walls of the French consulate in Casablanca.[3]

He also created, among other works, the statue of Georges Clemenceau displayed on Champs Elysées.[3]
