Jacques Le Bescond

Jacques Le Bescond is a well-known contemporary French sculptor recognized for his modern, simplified figurative works executed in wood, bronze, and marble. Le Bescond was
born in Caen in Brittany in 1945. His interest in the arts began at an early age when he developed a keen interest in woodworking. Le Bescond’s formal artistic training began at the famous L’École Boulle in Paris.

At the École, Le Bescond honed his skills in drawing, woodcarving, furniture-design, and wood sculpture restoration. During his early professional years, the artist often worked collaboratively with conservators, interior architects, and decorators and became very proficient and sought after for the restoration of wood sculptures, including medieval and religious figures, ships bows, and elaborately ornamented wood furniture.

During this same time, Le Bescond developed an interest in the work of Modernist sculptors, such as Amadeo Modigliani, Ossip Zadkine, Henry Moore, and Eduardo Chillida and began experimenting in sculpting in stone and bronze.

Le Bescond looks to the powerful, often monumental, yet simplified forms of Modernism, and draws on pre-historic and classical antique forms for inspiration, including the Moai, or heads, of Easter Island; sculpture from the Cycladic era, and stylized forms from classical antiquity. His resulting work is rooted in history, yet modern in feeling and appearance, drawing on the forms of the past to express the ideas and sentiments of today. Le Bescond often explores the theme of the couple or the pair, and the theme of the imagination of man through the form of the book.
