Bernadette Wilde, better known under the name of artist Nadine Vivier, becomes the companion of life of André Verdet from 1965 until her death in 2004. She inspires the most beautiful love poems of Verdet, which he dedicates to him often. She began her own artistic practice in 1971 and in the early 90's undertook a series of works called "Moon Birds". Verdet called her Nadine Vivier des oiseaux.
