CESAR BALDACCINI

César Baldaccini, (1 January 1921 – 6 December 1998), better known simply as César, was a noted French sculptor.

César was at the forefront of the Nouveau Réalisme movement with his radical compressions (compacted automobiles, discarded metal, or rubbish), expansions (polyurethane foam sculptures), and fantastic representations of animals and insects. He also belonged to the School of Nice movement.
