Biography

Career
Mathias Théophile Auguste BARBÉ  son of Dominique BARBÉ and first cousin of Télesphore BARBÉ, completed his apprenticeship in Mirecourt, presumably under C.N. BAZIN as did many of his contemporaries.

Around 1880 BARBÉ began to work for GAND & BERNARDEL frères before 
joining their Parisian workshop in 1886, the year during which the firm 
became GAND & BERNARDEL.

Auguste BARBÉ spent 10 years with this great firm, developing a style 
which came close to that of F.N. VOIRIN.

In 1896/1897 BARBÉ returned to Mirecourt where he opened his own workshop at 1 rue Chanot.
