20th Century Decorative Arts

Georges Bareau

Georges Marie Valentin Bareau (11 April 1866 in Paimbœuf - 4 January 1931 in Nantes) was a French sculptor.

He entered the École des beaux-arts de Paris where he was a pupil of Charles Gauthier and Gabriel-Jules Thomas. He exhibited at the Salon from 1889.

In 1893, he won a third medal at the Salon de la Société des artistes français and then, the following year, a vermeil medal at the Exposition universelle de Lyon. He was awarded the Salon prize in 1895, and at the end of the Brussels International Exhibition of 1897, he was placed out of competition. A gold medal at the 1900 Universal Exhibition in Paris crowned his career.

He was promoted to the rank of officer of the Legion of Honour in December 1906.

Many of his works are exhibited in public collections in Canada, Denmark and France.
