Biography

Raymond Coulon was born as the son of an artist blacksmith. He started as a trainee in the field of wood- and metalworking. Then he studied at the École des Beaux arts in Clermont-Ferrand. Later he moved to Paris and worked as assistant of sculptor Paul Niclausse. At the same time, he completed his studies at the École nationale des arts décoratifs. In 1932 he won the Grand Prix de Sculpture. He opened in Montparnasse, Paris and La Chapelle-en-Serval/Oise (for the production of monumental works). He was appointed professor of drawing at the École de l'Union Centrale des Arts Decoratifs in Paris and was entrusted with many public orders like the design of schools, restoring plastic ornaments of historic buildings and the design of medals. His figurative, smoothly polished works (usually in stone, but also in terracotta, wood and metal, especially in beaten copper) resembled the hieratic statues of the 1930s. Coulon was appointed Officier des Arts et Lettres.
