French sculptor and graphic artist René Iché studied law before studying sculpture and architecture in Paris. His daughter Laurence Iché (1921-2007) later became a surrealistic poet and was often his model in his early years. He mainly worked with granite in a surrealistic style, in some cases modeling death masks for prominent French artists. During World War I he was severely wounded and gassed. In 1927, he created a pacifist war memorial at Ouveillan, which was greatly respected. In 1940 he joined the French Résistance against the Nazis. In 1943 his sculpture “La Déchirée” (The Torn), was given in London to Général de Gaulle and it became one of the symbols of the French Résistance.
