Germaine Richier, an Original
By Michael Gibson
Published: May 4, 1996

SAINT-PAUL-DE-VENCE, France— Germaine Richier is surely one of the most original sculptors of our century. She was neither academic nor modernist but followed her own special way throughout the quarter century span of her relatively brief career.

Born in southern France at Grans in the Bouches-du-Rhône, Richier (1902-1959), whose work is on view at the Maeght Foundation through Aug. 25, studied at Montpellier with a former assistant of Rodin's before going to Paris. There she worked with Bourdelle during the last three years of his life.
