Internationally known French/American Master Bronze Portrait Sculptor, Martine Vaugel, is also known as a Classical Figure Sculptor. Her Contemporary Figures and Portrait Bas Reliefs are in high demand.
Ms. Vaugel expresses her love affair with the human spirit in the hundreds of small to medium size bronzes she displays in museums, private collections and her studios both in France and America.
Martine has been commissioned to do monuments and portraits (public and private) and continues to take (2) Commissions per year.
When not working on scuplture, Martine Vaugel is the proud teacher of thousands of figure sculptors who use her method around the world. Her teaching methods have been documented in videos and a book is currently in production in three languages.
Martine Vaugel has been teaching portrait and figure sculpture since 1976 when she founded the Venice Sculpture Studio and co-founded the Venice Painting, Drawing and Sculpture Studio in Los Angeles. It became a Mecca for many international artists and musicians, as well as Instructors who came from Norway, Israel, Rumania, Italy, France, Canada, and the U.S. In 1986 she was invited to be Sculpture Director of the New York Academy of Art and left Los Angeles.
In 1989 she opened her Sculpture Program in France because of her belief that intense instruction is best received in a relaxed secure environment, coupled with her strong affinity for French Classical Sculpture.
