Jean Mazuet ( - )

Introduced to sculpture by Elie Le Goff from Brioche, Jean Mazuet studied in Rennes with Bourget, then in Paris in Landowski's workshop. He won a silver medal at the Salon des Artistes Français in 1933 and joined the Seiz-Breur group in 1934, the year he became a member of the Société des Artistes Français.

With Marcel Le Louët, he created the famous "symbolic column" which adorned the entrance to the Brittany pavilion at the 1937 exhibition. After the war, as a professor of sculpture at the Fine Arts School in Nantes, he created a number of commemorative monuments and large bas-reliefs for churches in the Loire-Atlantique region.

He also made models for groups or vases decorated with figures to be reproduced in ceramic by moulding for the Quimper faience manufacturers. These pieces are the logical continuation of the "symbolic column" of 1937. Works where the relief prevails, the aim is to symbolize in a strong theme "Armor", "Argoat" or the Breton youth.
