Claudius LINOSSIER 1893-1953 Claudius LINOSSIER (1893-1953) :

Claudius Linossier started working metal very young, first in a religious goldsmith shop in Lyon, then in two Parisian workshops. He works for a while with the brasser Jean Dunand. He receives the Florence Blumenthal grant and the first price in the International Exhibition of 1937. With Decoeur, Lenoble, Decorchemont and Daurat, he was a member of the French Contemporary artists. Without using enamels or lacquers, his decorations, geometric or in a stylised archaism, were composed of metal encrustations. The bodies of the pieces, in red bronze or black tone ferronickel, were brightened either by the shaded grey of silver, by the pale gold of yellow copper or by the dark purple of red copper, magnified by the violent and primitive action fire.
