XIX - XXth century sculptures
COLLAMARINI René (1904-1983)
He used to be a certain number of sculptors' practitioner, such as Jonchère and was awarded with the Blumenthal price in 1930. His sculptures, he himself being physically strong, are very powerful. Whether he uses wood, marble or stone, he works in direct carving. He started statuary monuments in 1934 and developped his skills after the War. However, it is in 1945 that he became famous, as he slowly embrassed avant-gardism, his style becoming more abstract. He started to work with modern materials such as concrete and aluminium and worked on the theme of the 4 elements(earth, water, air and fire).
