François, known as Hippolyte, was the second son of the sculptor Jean-Baptiste Moreau and trained in his father's workshop.
With his two brothers Mathurin and Auguste, he moved to Paris to study under 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 18th century. He won a medal at the Universal Exhibition of 1878 and another in 1900.
Most of his works are kept in the Dijon Museum of Fine Arts.
