Biography

Paul Landowski was graduated at the French national academy. He won the Prix de Rome in 1900 for his statue of David and went on to a long lasting career producing over 45 monuments in Paris and the surrounding area. Among those is the Art Nouveau figure of St. Geneviève on the Pont de la Tournelle. He also created Les Fantomes, the French Memorial for the Secong Battle of the Marne, now located at the Butte de Chalmont in Northern France. His best-known work is the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, finished in 1931 in association with civil engineer Heitor da Silva Costa. From 1933-37 Landowski was Director of the French Academy in Rome. His children also became famous artists: the painter Nadine (1908-43), the composer and cultural politician Marcel (1915-99), and the pianist and painter Françoise (1917-2007). There is a museum in Boulogne-Billancourt which is dedicated to Landowski’s works.
