Biography :
Alexandre Descatoire (1874-1949) was the pupil of André-Louis-Adolphe Laoust. He obtained the second Grand Prix of Rome in 1902 and was elected a member of the Academy of Fine Arts in 1939.
Much of his work was dedicated to the soldiers of the First World War, and he designed in Lille a monument paying tribute to pigeon fanciers and birds that allowed communications during the Great War. Alexandre Descatoire realized in 1937 "Youth", on the Esplanade of Trocadéro in Paris.
