XIX - XXth century sculptures

BIGOT Raymond (1872-1953)

Contemporary to brilliant spirits such as Marcel Proust whom he got to meet, his love for nature led him to develop a passion for woodworking and he started direct carving in 1900, using oak trees, ebony, mahogany, Indian teak and others. He produced a lot of birds in direct carving, and more generally, animal sculptures and drawings, seized by the fervour of a moment and drawn into the authenticity of the tool's strikes.
