This is a stunning life size bronze bust of the impressive aviator Jean Mermoz signed by Gibert to the left shoulder. Lucien Gibert is registered in many books (i.e. Benezit). Lucien Gibert (1904-1988) was a Parisian sculptor. Trained in the workshop of Jean Boucher at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, it then follows the influence of Despiau, while still strongly influenced by the work and personality of Maillol. Exhibitors since 1923 at the Salon des Independants, it is a gold medal at the Exposition Internationale de Paris in 1937. He pursued a distinguished career related to the implementation of orders for buildings or memorials, it has also created numerous medals for the Paris Mint. His work shows a strong classical impregnation, showing his sculptures, particularly the bust of Jean Mermoz, a taste for art severe, monumental in its forms in the powerful curves, modelled in expressive and generous. Gibert has indeed given Jean Mermoz type of a Roman soldier or an emperor, his face hard and haughty semblance completely geared toward a thought or a heroic activity. The bust shows the richness of current stylistic said the "return to order" .
