François dit Hippolyte is the second son of sculptor Jean-Baptiste-Louis-Joseph Moreau and trained in his father's workshop. With his two brothers Mathurin and Auguste, he moved to Paris to follow the teaching of François Jouffroy at the École des beaux-arts. From 1863 to 1914, he exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français where he sent decorative subjects most often inspired by the eighteenth century. He won a medal at the Universal Exhibition of 1878 and another at the Universal Exhibition of 1900. He mainly produced medium-sized works and decorative or everyday objects: vases, statuettes, letter opener, empty-pockets in bronze, spelter or pewter. He is the author of the statue of Alexis Claude Clairaut (1880) on one of the facades of the Hôtel de Ville in Paris, rue de Lobau. Most of his works are kept at the Museum of Fine Arts in Dijon.
