The bride's parents
Polychrome earthenware. Circa 1930.
Jim Sévellec created three series of small subjects for the Henriot factory, illustrating a wedding, a pardon and a village festival called "la gavotte". To complete the set, he created, still in earthenware, houses, a refreshment stall and a church, enough to set these characters in a small village. This idea no doubt came to him as a result of his work on the lively dioramas produced for the Tanguy Tower, showing the bustle of his home town of Brest before the war.
