Guillemin was born in Paris, France and specialized with the French School in the production of bronze sculptures. Guillemin debuted at an exhibition in 1870, at the Salon (Paris), and won an award in 1897.


Guillemin did a production of bronze sculptures and focused his attention on heroic or exotic genres.

Some of his well known bronzes are Arab Warrior Knight, Arab Dancing Girls, Cavaliers, Knights in Armor, The Mandolin Player, Conquistadores, The Alchemist, the Silver Smith, The Bust of Dante Alighieri and Shakespeare. At the 1872 Salon, Guillemin presented Rétaire and Mirmillon, two statuettes of Roman gladiators in bronze and a series of busts in subsequent years.[2]


His bronzes are now in many museums collections:
