This third stage of a remarkable traveling exhibition is showing at 15 Square de Vergennes, in Paris, 15th arrondisement, just a short walk from the artist’s old studio at no.16 Rue des Volontaires. Carlo Sarrabezolles counts among the greatest monumental sculptors of his time. Associated with many leading architects, he produces numerous great sculpted projects in France and abroad. The exhibition is staged in the studio of the master glassworker Louis Barillet, constructed in 1932 by the architect Robert Mallet-Stevens – another great figure in the use of cement in construction and ornamentation of buildings

Exhibition Carlo Sarrabezolles
de l'Esquisse au Colossal

In Reims, Carlo Sarrabezolles is known for the decoration of the Town Hall, which he made in collaboration with his friend Roger Expert, and the exhibition focuses on this collaboration which also extended to the décor of the Normandie ocean liner and the French Embassy in Belgrade.

The exhibition throws light on the era of Art Deco and the Art of the 1930s, which are so important in the city of Reims. It focuses above all on the artist's creative mark, his different studies and also on his invention of the technique of carving directly in concrete.
