Pierre Le Faguays
Born in Nantes; pupil of Vibert. He attracted the attention of the
public at his first exhibition due to the originality he gave his
dancing subjects which were inspired by the statues of Tangara. He
was a member of the salon of La Stele and Evolution groups.
Received a medal of honour in 1927.
Max Le Verrier
After serving in WW1, Le Verrier studied at the École des
Beaux-Art in Geneva alongside Marcel Bouraine and Pierre Le
Faguays who remained friends for life, often working together. In
the early 1920s he inherited a small foundry in which he was soon
producing small sculptures and decorative objects such as lamps,
ashtrays, bookends and hood ornaments in the Art Deco style. In
addition to his own sculptures, he cast for the artists Pierre Le
Faguays, Marcel Bouraine, André Vincent Becquere and Jules Edmont
Masson among others. He mostly worked with bronze, ivory, zinc,
terracotta and ceramics. Le Verrier showed his work in the salons
of the Société des artistes décorateurs of which he was an elected
member and at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et
industriels modern in 1925 he won a gold medal. He also exhibited
at the Paris World Exhibition in 1937.
