The sculptor, native of Aix en Provence, recommended to the gallery by Jean Dubuffet, was regularly exhibited between 1970 and 1980. His works in basalt sand, fireproof cement and water offer a synthesis of sculptural elements and architecture. Following his first exhibition at the gallery followed by the promotion of his works in Oslo, the French State acquired La tatoue démolie. Thereafter monumental pieces joined major collections of foreign institutions, Rosenberg at the Darmstadt Museum and Par la mer, le passage at the Kröller-Müller of Otterlo.
