...Jean Dubuffet will be one of the first one to encourage him by introducing him in 1969 to Jean-François Jaeger, director of the Jeanne Bucher art gallery who defended the artist.

Thanks to the public and private commissions, monumental sculptures were set up in the Vincennes's Parc Floral, in the France Telecom (Orange) head office in Paris, in Ivry, Aubervilliers, Monaco-Fontvieille or in the Elysée Palace, the highlight being the Monument erected in tribute to Arthur Rimbaud in 1989 in Marseille.

Jean Amado also made sculptures destinated to private collections, museums and foundations. Moreover, many exhibitions and retrospectives made Amado known in France and abroad.  Christian Bobin, Jean-Luc Daval, Georges Duby, Bernard Noël, Louis Pons, Dora Vallier, Germain Viatte, among others, analysed his work. After his death in 1995, a great retrospective was organized in 1997, followed by an important exhibition in 2008 in Aix-en-Provence.

This year sculpture was exhibited  in the Granet Museum in Aix-en-Provence, within the exhibition Jeanne Bucher, La Passion de l'Art.
