François-Xavier Lalanne and Claude Lalanne, became a dynamic artist couple co-created many works together. While Francois-Xavier favored sculpting animal themes, Claude preferred vegetation. The themes explored by the two collectively went against the current trend of Abstract art in the 1960s. The couple began attracting public attention in Paris during the 1960s when Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé commissioned them. Their first exhibition together included Francois-Xavier’s famous rhinoceros desk, Rhinocrétaire, and Claude’s cabbage with chicken legs sculpture.
