Louis Noël (ne: Hubert Louis-Noël; Saint-Omer, April 1, 1839 - Paris, 1925) was a French sculptor. After studying at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts under François Jouffroy,[1] Noël became a productive artist, exhibiting regularly. His busts, statues, and portraits were of historical figures, saints, and contemporary people. He created several notable portrait-medallions: Abbe Derguesse (1867; bronze), Mme L. B (1869, silver), Abbe Binet (1873, silver), President Quenson (1875), and M. B (1877).[2] Noël was the stepfather of the sculptor Jules Déchin (1869-1947).
