Born on August 24, 1833 in Paris, France he studied under the painter Henri Royer. The sculptor exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon between 1863 and 1914. Picault died in 1915 in Paris, France. Today, his works are held in the collections of the Troyes Museum in Paris and the Musée des beaux-arts de Chambery.
