French sculptor, studied painting and drawing in Paris in 1938, under Robert Lesbounit. After World War II, he earned his living creating frescos and stained glass windows for Saint-Jacques, Petit-Montrouge. In the 1950s, at about the same time he turned from oil painting to sculpture and other media, the artist chose to add his mother's maiden name, "Ipoustéguy", to his name, since "Robert" is a common surname in France.
In 1979, his largest sculpture, L'homme construit sa ville, was installed at the Congress Centre in Berlin.
