Rembrandt Bugatti was born October 16th, 1884 in Milan, Italy. He is the youngest son of the architect and designer Carlo Bugatti (designer and manufacturer of extraordinary furniture) brother of Dejanice Bugatti car manufacturer Ettore Bugatti, Jean Bugatti's uncle.
Animal sculptor, he works at the Antwerp zoo or at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris. But his fellows did not leave him indifferent and he models muscular men or slender women in the clay. Power of the fauvism touch, modernity of cubist forms, his art announces what will be Art Deco.
Enlisted in the Franco-Belgian Red Cross, he was in Paris in 1916. Alone, destitute, overwhelmed by the carnage of war, he died on January 8, 1916.
After a critical study based on period documents, Véronique Fromanger, recognized expert of Rembrandt Bugatti, establishes in the catalogue raisonné of the works of the sculptor.
