Max Le Verrier was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine in January 1891.

Son of a Parisian goldsmith , he discovered a passion for drawing and sculpture very early on .
Yet, convinced that the future is in agriculture , his father forced him to follow this path.
When Max Le Verrier finished his studies , World War I broke out and he was taken prisoner by Germany .
It was during this period of captivity that the young man devoted himself seriously to sculpture with other prisoners . Interned in Switzerland in 1917, he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Geneva with Marcel Bouraine and Pierre Le Faguays .

When Max Le Verrier returned to Paris after the Armistice , he inherited a small foundry and devoted himself to making decorative objects from small sculptures .
His first work will be a pelican made in an Art Deco style and sculpted with an ax .
A few years later, the artist will also dedicate one of his series to animals, visiting zoos and circuses for inspiration.
Her "Sitting Cat" in this case was influenced by the many cats that roamed around her house .
Sometimes, some of Max Le Verrier's works are part of the Cubist trend , such as his "Marabout" or his "Squirrel" for example .
At that time , the sculptor was still in charge of the entire production chain, from cast iron to patina , including carving .

Max Le Verrier's style is characterized by the elegance and modernism that he inherited from his influences from ancient Egypt , ancient Greece and tribal art ... His sober line allows him , when he sculpts female figures, to obtain athletic bodies and in perfect symmetry .
This is indeed what characterizes her Clarté torchiere, a sculpture of a woman holding a ball of light. These sculptures of women are for him a way of approaching the exit of the woman .
Because besides his sculpture production, Max Le Verrier will also make lamps, sconces, bookends and other decorative objects always in the Art Deco style .
He will also edit the works of some of his comrades such as Bouraine and Pierre Le Faguays .

From 1919, the publishing house of Max Le Verrier was very successfu l.
At the end of World War II , he even received a gold medal at the first International Exhibition of Decorative Arts .Max Le Verrier died in June 1973 in Paris .
