Jean Amado (1922-1995)

The sculptor, native of Aix en Provence, friend of Jean Dubuffet, was regularly exhibited between 19760 and 1990., But since it looks like he is forgotten by most.

His works in basalt sand, fireproof cement and water offer a synthesis of sculptural elements and architecture. Following his first exhibition at the gallery followed by the promotion of his works in Oslo, the French State acquired La tatoue démolie. Thereafter monumental pieces joined major collections of foreign institutions, Rosenberg at the Darmstadt Museum and Par la mer, le passage at the Kröller-Müller of Otterlo. The latest is from 1980 at which year he had a large solo exhibition at the museum. sells a complete photo press set, including Amado at work at the museum and has the Amado book which was published with the exhibition for sale too.
