Biography :
lucille-sevin
Lucille Sévin is a French sculptor, active from 1920 to 1940. She was a student of the sculptor François-Léon Sicard (1862-1934). Lucille Sévin created numerous chryselephantine sculptures in the Art Deco style, using materials such as bronze, silver or gold, and ivory. Her work was skillfully implemented and distributed by the art publisher Edmond Etling. For a time, Sevin was the artistic director of the Etling company. Her husband, sculptor Jean Théodore Delabassé, also worked for Etling.

Sévin also worked in glass, ceramics and porcelain. His sculptures of dancers in frosted and iridescent milky glass like Isadora Duncan from 1925 were made for Etling in a glass factory in Choisy-le-Roi.

Sévin exhibited at the Salon de la Société des Artistes Français in Paris and became a member of the Society. Lucille Sévin won the bronze medal in 1932 and the gold medal at the 1937 Paris World Fair. She also exhibited her work at the Société du Salon d'Automne in Paris.
