Jacques Fran ois Joseph Saly, also known as Jacques Saly, French-born sculptor who worked in France, Denmark, and Italy, was born in Valenciennes to Francois Marie Saly and wife Marie Michelle. He began his training as a sculptor at nine years of age under local master Antoine Gilles in Velenciennes from 1726-1727. In spite of his parents' meager income, he was sent to Paris in 1732 to train in the studio of sculptor Guillaume Coustou. At the same time he attended the French Academy of Art, the Acad mie royale de peinture et de sculpture, winning medals in 1734, 1737 and 1738. Winning that last medal, first place in the gold medallion competition, gave him the right to study at the French Academy in Rome. He first received his stipend in 1740, and he arrived in Rome on 13 October 1740
