    Louis Tuaillon (d. 1919) studied at the Berlin Academy under Reinhold Begas (d. 1911) from 1879 to 1883. In 1885 he travelled to Rome, where he maintained close association with the German artistic community in Italy. His friendships with the painter Hans von Marees (d. 1887) and the sculptor Adolph von Hildebrand (d. 1921) led him to abandon Begas's flamboyant Neo-Baroque tendencies in favour of a more classically-inspired style, the most celebrated example of which is his work Amazon on Horseback (1895), purchased by the Berlin National Gallery.
