César Baldaccini, usually called César, was a noted French sculptor who became known his solid, welded sculptures of creatures and fantastic representations of animals and insects. César reworked common objects and recycled urban detritus in order to challenge the values of mass production.

First influenced by the metal sculptures of Brancusi, Picasso, and Giacometti, César became associated with the 1960s Paris-based Nouveau Réalisme movement, a response to Pop Art that involved artists like Jean Tinguely and Yves Klein.
