architecture, then decorative art. He graduated from the School in 1905. Bonnardel, his teacher, leaves him
express oneself freely in all areas: male model, cityscapes, flowers,

He exhibited in Lyon from 1906. In 1909, he entered the lodge at the École des Beaux-Arts for the
decorative landscape competition and won the Ponthus-Cinier prize. In 1925, examples of his

His work was presented in a group exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. He
set up decorative compositions for the town hall of the 7th arrondissement of Paris.

With a Baudelairean sensibility, Combet-Descombes celebrated the female body throughout his life.

he makes this body, most often contemplated from above, from the top of a stepladder, a sign
Plastic of a rare sensuality.
