Raymond Bigot

Né en 1872 - France


Raymond Bigot is a French painter, wood sculptor, watercolorist and decorator born in Orbec in 1872 and died in 1953 in Ecquemauville.

At the age of 13, he worked as an apprentice sculptor at a charpentry in Orbec, the father "Hardouin" to whom he will develop a deep admiration all his life. He then took classes at the School of Decorative Arts of Paris in Paris where he improved his drawing and his modeling and then in 1911 he returned to Honfleur to his property named "La Hulotte", in tribute to his favorite bird.
Mobilized in 1914, he was appointed guard and spent a lot of time drawing, he exhibited his work in San Francisco and Barcelona during the war.

Basically inspired by Japanese art and the singular technique of the great Japanese masters, he practiced with talent in some of his works the technique of the wash, which consists in using only one color (watercolor or ink of China) which is then diluted to obtain different intensities of color.

Passionate by nature and animals, especially by birds, his art is characterized by a form of sensitivity, finesse, lightness and audacity at the same time allowing him to depict with virtuosity the depth of the plumage of the owl, Or the owl.
His sculptures carved in rosewood and exotic wood depict mainly birds: hulottes, parakeets of Dakar, turkeys.

He participated in various exhibitions in Europe and America. He exhibited at the Salon d'Automne in 1907, then at the Salon des Tuileries between 1923 and 1927. In 1925, he received the grand prize for the exhibition of decorative arts.
