Louis-Henri Nicot

Nicot began his artistic education in Rennes before moving to the Ecole de Beaux Arts in Paris. He won numerous prizes during his career and is most noted for his various public works commissions in both Paris and his native Brittany (including numerous war memorials) as well as his models for Breton pottery figurines. This sculpture was such a model for a famous faïence grouping produced by Quimper. The sitters were all cousins of Nicot's wife, Jeanne-Marie.
