Jean Fréour

Jean Fréour (8 August 1919 – 11 June 2010) was a prominent Breton sculptor.

Fréour was born in Nantes. He studied at the Bordeaux School of the Fine arts and attended the classes of Louis-Henry Bouchard in the national School of the Fine arts in Paris. He is a member of the Breton artistic movement Seiz Breur.

In the mid-1950s he settled in the Breton south coast town of Batz-sur-Mer. For a period of a year, he was mayor of the town.

In his work, Fréour uses different materials, including the schist, marble, onyx, and wood. His sculptures often carry a stamp of Breton identity impregnated with Catholicism.

He is the author of the statue of Anne of Brittany (made of bronze and erected in the city of Nantes in 2002).
