France Hilbert

Hilbert’s major work consists of sculpture for public space. As a classically trained artist, she also receives regular commission work in painting and drawing.  

 

Her artistic education began at the age of seven, when she was taught by her grandfather, the late artist, Jaro Hilbert. From him, she received a thorough education in the classical tradition.  She continued her formal studies at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Paris, France, at The Academy of Art of The Newington Cropsey Foundation, Hastings on Hudson, NY and at The Art Students League of New York. She was awarded an Edward G. McDowell Travel Grant from the Art Students League of New York in 2002.  

Of her many public and private commissions, some are permanent installations. “Talma”, a 7-foot bronze sculpture is installed in the public square of the Theatre of the Valley of L’Yerres, in Brunoy, France. A pair of 4-foot bronze relief sculptures entitled ”The Calling” is installed at the Georgetown University Medical School building in Washington DC. Her work is currently represented by Galerie Vallois, Paris, France and Clover’s Fine Art Gallery, Brooklyn, NY.
