several years Rodin's assistant. Rodin's
influence can be seen in the strong lines and
vigorous movement of B.'s work, e.g. Hercules
the Archer (1909) but B. was also affected by
his study of Greek and Egyptian art. His output
includes frescoes and reliefs for the Theatre
des Champs-Elysecs (1912), monumental work and
many portrait busts.
