Biography

Swiss sculptor Milo Martin, son of the engraver and lithographer Emile Martin, earned the silver medal in the sculpturing category, statues in the Art Competitions at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympic Games with his work Athlete At Rest, but this work could not be confirmed. His second submission, the statue M. Le Baron Pierre de Coubertin was registered in his work catalogue, but was not displayed in Amsterdam. Martin also created the commemorative medal for the 1928 Winter Games.

Martin studied at the School of Industrial Arts in Génève and Roma and joined his older brother, the painter René Martin. In 1921, Milo married the photographer Germaine Odot, who continued to practice after the birth of their son, Francis. Milo’s sculptures were often of nudes, a favorite theme.
