Jorj Robin dit BRION ( - )

Born in Nantes into a family of artists, he was brought up largely by his grandfather, Joseph Vallet, a sculptor. Georges Robin naturally entered the Beaux-Arts de Nantes at the age of 14. He continued his studies at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris where he was taught by Jean Boucher. He was particularly noticed in the field of sculpture. But Georges Robin had two loves: art and politics. He is one of the active animators of the Breton Autonomist Party in Paris. It was through this that he met Jeanne Malivel and the Creston couple, and that he naturally initiated the Seiz Breur movement with them, which came into being in 1923. He also initiated the creation of the magazine Kornog. He began his collaboration with the HB factory in 1924 at the age of 20. He died at the age of 24, leaving behind twenty-five different statues for the factory. This artist did not have the time to give the full power of his talent, which without this premature departure, was undoubtedly on a par with a Méheut or a Quillivic.
