Augustin Jean Moreau-Vauthier studied at the École des beaux-arts de Paris in 1850 under Armand Toussaint. He specialised in allegorical and mythical figures. He executed works for the Saint-Bernard de la Chapelle church, for the Tuileries Palace and for the Paris Town Hall. In 1893 he exhibited three sculptures at the World Columbian Exposition in Chicago.

He was the father of the author Charles Moreau-Vauthier (1857-1924) and of the sculptor Paul Moreau-Vauthier (1871-1936). His daughter married the sculptor Ernest Dagonet (1856-1926). He died in 1893 in Paris and the sculpture on his tomb was created by himself.
