Polish avant-garde artist Jean Lambert-Rucki (1888–1967) was a painter and a sculptor. In 1911, he settled in Paris where he shared his room with Modigliani in Montparnasse and became friend with Soutine, Chagall and Fernand Léger.
In 1920, he participated in the Section d’Or and a few years later, exhibited alongside Le Corbusier and Mallet-Stevens at the Union des Artistes Modernes (U.A. M.).
Lambert-Rucki is considered as one of the great renovators of sacred art and worked closely with the great coppersmith Jean Dunand and the jeweler Fouquet.
