Lucien Gibert graduated from the .cole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. He worked independently under the guidance of Despiau, who steered him towards a less conventional style. But Maillol is still his main influence. He enjoys working with stone and marble, carving them directly. He has made many monuments as well as over 200 medals. Volupté, a typical work is a sculpture with round, generous, full-volume forms.
