After a first apprenticeship in his father's workshop, a woodcarver, Gilbert Privat enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux-arts in Toulouse and then at the Ecole nationale des Beaux-arts in Paris.
He won a second prize in Rome in 1921. Several official awards punctuated his career and he participated in various international exhibitions between 1925 and 1939.
He enjoyed considerable success, as evidenced by his abundant production, which can be explained both by the official commissions he was honoured and by those of renowned decorators who included his works in their ensembles.
His representations deliberately combine a worldly grace and sensuality devoid of artifice.
