Lucien GIBERT (1904-1988) began his training alongside his father who worked as a cabinetmaker.
In 1921, he arrived in Paris to attend the courses of Jean Boucher at the ‘Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Paris’ where he graduated.
As of 1923, he regularly exhibited at the ‘Salon des Indépendants.’

He received numerous public commissions and executed two monumental sculptures, a female and a male, representing two young athletes, that currently adorns the entrance of the Charléty Stadium in Paris. He also created more than 200 medals with the ‘Monnaie de Paris’ of which he was then the director.

Some of his artworks are present at many of the French public collections, notably a sculpture in stone representing a “Maternity”, currently located at ‘La Piscine Museum’ in Roubaix. A bronze statuette of an “Algerian Dancer” is presently part of the ‘Quai Branly’ Museums’ collection in Paris, as well as a copy of the model we present for the Biennale, at the Museum of the Thirties in Boulogne-Billancourt.
