Jean Chauvin was an abstract French sculptor, born in Rochefort-sur-Mer, France in 1889. He moved to Paris in 1908 to study under Antonin Mercie, who was President of the Société des Artistes Français.
Chauvin became an early adopter of Cubism and Abstraction, concerned with the materiality and geometry of his work. He exhibited at the Paris International Exhibition in 1937, the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles in 1946-47, and the Venice Biennale in 1962. His work can be found in the permanent collection at the Musée National d’Art Moderne and the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris.
