Emmanuel Villanis (12 December 1858 - 28 August 1914) was a French sculptor. He studied at the Accademia Albertina in Turin, where one of his teachers was Odoardo Tabacchi.
From 1885, Villanis lived in Paris and became one of the most productive sculptors at the end of the 19th century. His bronze busts of women, cast by the Society de Bronze de Paris, were exported worldwide – from Paris to the USA. Today his sculptures can be found regularly in auctions.
