Born in Geneva, François Bocquet studied in Paris under Jean Dampt and as of 1900 was one of the five artists who exhibited at the Galerie des Artistes Modernes under the name “L'Art dans tout”.
A talented engraver he was at ease with producing both silver and copper objects which were either unique or in small edition. He adorned his silver objects with gold and enamel highlights and semi precious stones such as moonstones and lapis lazuli. His motifs are floral enhanced with insects (cicadas, ladybirds, bees).
He soon turns to jewelry and exhibits regularly at the Société Nationale de Beaux-Arts.
