Eugène Bourgoin studied at the École des Arts Décoratifs beginning in 1901, later studying at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. His niece Danièle Guyader-Follias became a well-known ballet dancer. Taken as a POW during WWI, Bourgoin never forgot the faces of the wounded and the captured, and in their honor he built several monuments after the war throughout France. He died only a few months after the end of the 1924 Paris Olympics.
