Painter and sculptor, originally from Vaulion, in the Vaudois Jura, Casimir Reymond studied at the School of Fine Arts in Geneva.
We owe him a sculpture of Mary in the Saint-Paul church (Haute-Vienne). Many of his sculptures adorn the city of Lausanne.
He stayed in Paris from 1929 to 1932 where he participated in several Parisian exhibitions.

The painter received the Wilhelm Gimmi Prize in 1969, shortly before his death.

From 1932, he taught at the cantonal school of drawing and applied art in Lausanne, which he directed between 1933 and 1934, and from 1945 to 1955.
