Félix Agostini was born in 1910 in Paris. He was gifted in drawing from childhood and at the age of twenty-four was hired by a printer as an advertising designer and retoucher. A few years later, he opened a shop and produced his first models of lighting in wrought iron, ceramic and bronze. He worked with Diego Giacometti. From 1955, he sculpted in plaster the models of his lights which were then cast in bronze. For several years, every summer, he personally exhibited his works at the Cusin gallery in Mougins and built up a large clientele. Félix Agostini died in 1980.
