  Richard Guino: Richard Guino was born in Gerona Spain in 1880. He attended Fine Arts class at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Barcelona. IN 1908 Maillol discovered him at a group exhibit in Gerona. He began to work with Maillol at his studio and collaborated int the develpment of the "Four Seasons". He then worked with Maurice Denis on 2 bas reliefs for the new theatre at the Champs Elysees. In 1913 he met with Vollard at the Druet Gallery in Paris, and Vollard, convinced of the great talent of Guino propsed him to Renoir as an assistant. A veritable osmosis was created between the two and Renoir began to choose the subjects, the people their gestures, and Guino modeled and molded the clay to create the sculptures. Together they produced some 20-30 sculptures. In 1918 Guino left the studio of Renoir and began to exhibit with Galerie Hebard in Paris where he had three exhibitions.
