Bitter was born in Marseille in 1883 and was a leading sculptor in the early 20thc, and is best known for his high quality bronze figures and animals which he produced during the Art Deco period. He received many awards during his lifetime, including a medal from the salon, and a Legion of Honour in 1932, and his work can be found in many leading museums.
