Gaston Hauchecorne
Born in Le Havre (France), he started to expose in the early twenties at the «salon des Artistes Français» a few classical subjects as well a a large range of oriental figures treated with naturalism and humour.

Most of the subjects are made in natural terra-cota or in bronze en bronze with cire perdue technique by Susse editor, or sometime by Lehmann editor.
