Biography :

André Bizette-Lindet was first a student at the School of Decorative Arts and fine arts. From 1929, he participated in the Salon of French Artists before becoming a member of the Salon. He also exhibited at the Salon d’Automne, the Salon Comparaisons as well as at the Artists Decorators.

In 1930, he won the Grand Prix de Rome thanks to his sculpture The Javelin Thrower. He then resided at the Villa Medici in Rome from 1931 to 1935.

He responds to various public commissions, notably creating the bronze doors of the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris, in 1937. He also decorates the French pavilion at the New York International Fair 1939-1940 and participates to the decoration of the French Embassy in Ottawa in 1938.

In 1947, André Bizette-Lindet made the models of the ceramic decoration intended to adorn the presidential dining room of the Élysée Palace. This project is described by Bizette-Lindet as “an eclectic tribute to Persian enamels, the tapestry of La Dame à la Licorne and medieval illuminations”.

His membership of the performance research group “Mur Vivant” marks the second part of his career: it is a question of articulating in the most natural way monumental sculpture and contemporary architecture.

He uses various materials (sandstone, granite, bronze, ceramic) to create works that are most often monumental.
