As an admirer of Joseph Bernard, René Collamarini practices direct carving in marble. Student of the School of Fine Arts in Paris, then of the sculptor Jean Boucher, he was awarded the Blumenthal Prize in 1930.
After the war, he received commissions from architects, executed monumental works for many schools and hospitals as part of the Reconstruction.
The traditional figuration of its beginnings evolves towards an avant-garde stylization close to abstraction.
