XIX - XXth century sculptures
BAZIN François (1897-1956)
He was born in a family of artists specialised in carving. From his learnings at the Beaux-Arts, he acquired a classical style. In the 1920s, he created a lot of radiator caps with stylized lines, but presents his first breton subjects, being keen on that region of France, during the Exposition des Arts Décoratifs of 1925, subjects full of modernism and which some would qualify as cubist, made out of bronze and granite. His trip to Egypt gave him the taste for orientalist themes.
