Joseph Lorkowski Boulton (American, 1896-1981)

“Stalking Cougar”, bronze, 9 1/4”, c. 1930.  Signed J.L. Boulton and with the foundry mark DAMA.  

A Connecticut sculptor, Boulton was widely known for his animalier bronze and alabaster figures.  

He exhibited at the National Academy of Design, Pennsylvania  Academy of Fine Art

and numerous others from the 1920s through the 1960s, and his work is held by several museums.


Raised in Fort Worth, Texas and possibly born in Michigan, Joseph Boulton was a sculptor, painter, teacher and taxidermist and was especially known for his talents in depicting animals and his studies of Indians. 

His father was a carpenter, and he became interested in modeling and building from working with his dad. In 1915, he went to New York as a student at the National Academy of Design, where he teacher was sculptor Herman Atkins MacNeil.  During World War I, he served in France in the Marine Corps, and then returned to studies with MacNeil at the Art Students League. In 1966, he moved to Westport, Connecticut where he died in 1981. Associations included the Allied Artists of America, Hudson River Valley Association, and the Salmagundi Club 

in New York.  Source: John and Deborah Powers, "Texas Painters, Sculptors, and Graphic Artists"
