Jacques Lehman dit Nam ( - )

Jacques Nam

Nam, whose real name was Jacques Lehman, came from a family of musicians from Alsace. He entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris around 1900, where he studied under Jean-Léon Gérôme. It was at this time that he began to draw animals in the Jardin des Plantes. Nam is an undisputed specialist of the animal world to which he devotes many exhibitions. But he also drew political cartoons for many newspapers. His work as an illustrator, painter and sculptor is unbroken. His collaboration with the Manufacture HB began in the 1920s. He made six models in Quimper, all in stoneware.
