Jean-François-Théodore Gechter is a pupil of François Joseph Bosio and Baron Gros. His first exhibition, which took place in 1824, focused on classic and mythological subjects. From 1830 he moved on to smaller sculptures and animal themes. His Fight of Charles Martel, a command of the Ministry of Commerce, is noticed in 1833. Gechter shows his talent for the old scenes, presenting characters with elaborate costumes. He died in 1844.
