Adolphe RIVET was a French sculptor, medalist and writer who was born in Périgueux in 1855, but strangely his death is not recorded!

He exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français with honorable mention in 1888 and a second-class medal in 1908 .
His medals can be found in museum and gallery collections around the world, including Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
