Jean-René Debarre is a sculptor, teacher at the Boulle school, who received the prize and scholarship from the ‘Fondation Blumenthal pour la Pensée et l’Art Français’ in 1932. This American institution aims to discover and promote French artists in United States.
He has created many wall decorations and frescoes for private places (sculptures Porte de Clichy in Paris, Murals at the town hall of Bayeux, Théâtre du Comoedia...) and public places.
At the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1937, he created the bas-relief of the Palais de Chaillot "L’Architecte Civil" which, according to Paul Léon, is a tribute to "the union of architecture and decorative arts".
