XIX - XXth century sculptures

GIBERT Lucien (1904-1988)

Taught by Bouchard and Despiau at the Beaux-Arts and influenced by Maillol, he first practiced direct carving on stone and wood. He started exhibiting 'edition' sculptures in spelter or bronze, with an Art Déco spirit but also female subjects in a neo-classical style,  at the Salon des Artistes Français in 1923. His bronzes were cast by Valsuani, Coubertin and Deroyaume.
