ROTY, rṓ'tḗ', Louis Oscar (1846—). A French medalist and engraver, born in Paris. He was a pupil of Ponscarme and Dumont, and won the Prix de Rome in 1875. His subjects are treated with remarkable skill in obtaining the most delicate results. His portraits are also admirable. With Chapu, Degeorge, and Chaplin, he ranks as the greatest reviver of medallic art in France during the last century.
