Émile Just Bachelet ( - )

He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Nancy until 1912 where he was a pupil of Jules Larcher for drawing and Ernest Bussières for sculpture. He then studied at the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris.

From 1920, he exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français. At the end of the 1925 Decorative Arts Exhibition, Emile-Just Bachelet received a gold medal for his collaboration with the Henriot Manufacture. It was through Mathurin Méheut that Bachelet joined Henriot. In Quimper, he deals with religious subjects or illustrates daily life. The collaboration between Bachelet and Henriot took place between 1924 and 1930, the majority of the models being created in the first two years of their collaboration.

Only a part of his work is the result of his collaboration with Henriot. Bachelet also collaborated with the Lunéville, Mougin in Nancy, St Clément and the Manufacture de Sèvres, where he is mentioned as a sculptor from 1931 to 1936.  Apart from his rich collaboration with Quimper, Emile-Just Bachelet had a brilliant national career.
