"Il Dispetto" was originally produced as a plaster model that was presented by the artist Jean Valette at one of the Paris Salons back in 1868, before the full size marble statue was sculpted and presented at an other Salon for art works. "Il Dispetto" translates to In Spite, however, this can also mean frustrated or annoyed, and the artist, Jean Valette, sculpted the statue to represent a frustrated young musician.


Jean Valette (1825-1878) is a French sculptor and painter. Jean Valette enrolled in 1848 at the Paris School of Fine Arts in the workshops of François Jouffroy and Jean-Marie Bonnassieux. He participated for the first time in the Salon in 1847, where he presented Cujas, jurisconsulte. He made ornamental sculptures for churches. His work was rewarded with a third medal at the Salon of 1861.
