by Marcel Gimond (1894-1961)
He received in turn advice from Maillol then from Renoir who both sensed in him a remarkable disposition for sculpting. His main title of glory isn’t winning the Blumenthal Prize in 1924 but having been the first sculptor from the anti-academic inspiration commissioned to make the official bust of a President of the Republic, Vincent Auriol. His nudes, plentiful, earned him to enter the National Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Modern Art of Paris before he died.
