Lit: Maurice Guiraud-Rivière ( Jean Achille Maurice Guiraud) was a French draughtsman, painter and sculptor. A native of Toulouse and nephew of the sculptor Théodore Rivière, Maurice studied at the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts in Paris under Antonin Mercié, who was also his uncle’s teacher. He exhibited in Paris at the Salon des artistes français from 1907. He became famous in particular for his female subjects sculpted in the Art Deco style, bronze prints of which were mainly published by the famous Etling firm. An artist in tune with the times, he worked on sports, aviation and motoring subjects. Guiraud-Rivière worked as a modeller at the Manufacture nationale de Sèvres between 1911 and 1923. He also produced cartoons, Orientalist watercolours and advertising posters.
