Louis Thomas d'Hoste

Date of birth : 1932

Country : France

French sculptor.

After studying at Visual Arts at the School of Art Professions, in 1955 he founded the Seuil Etroit Gallery in Paris, which he ran for two years and where he exhibited his first sculptures. Since then, he took part in more than a hundred exhibitions and many of his works have been published by the Monnaie de Paris.

His art follows that of Brancusi and Arp. His marble sculptures are the fruit of reflection on the purity of forms and are the result of a rigorous geometrical design in which the austerity of lines highlights the clarity of the spirit.
