BIOGRAPHIE

Le Nantec Jacques, born Jacques Metayer, December 28, 1940 in Nantes, is a French sculptor. He started drawing very young and at thirteen, he restored a broken statue. This is when he discovered a passion for sculpture. However, there were no art school at Chambery, where his father was military assigned. He will therefore be initiated in sculpture through the art of pottery.

He didn’t want to hear about studies. In 1959, his father was transferred to Paris. Jacques Le Nantec could finally access the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts … but it’s section was Architecture in order to meet his parents. He attended Workshop of Noël Maresquier. However, he had a military service to attend and the only way to have a little control over the assignment was to present himself before being summoned.

He returned to Algeria in 1962. In order to live and support the production of his sculptures, he worked alternately as a designer, a cartoonist (Spirou magazine) and a modeller of wax figures. As a self-taught artist, he persisted in continuing to study anatomy, to create the female nudes that made him famous. His art, of course, reveals women of his time far from yesteryear’s academic nudes.
