Pierre Bettencourt was born in Normandy in 1917. He devoted himself first to writing, typography, printing, publishing poetic books. He made long trips to Africa, Oceania, India, the United States, Mexico, the Far East…

In 1963, with his wife the writer Monique Apple, he settled in the Yonne in Stigny, where he will continue his work until 2006. He will lead there his literary work, his drawn work and his high reliefs, the obelisks being the last works in volume that he will realize.
