Biography

Career
The brother of Victor FÉTIQUE, Jules Fétique served his apprenticeship under Emile MIQUEL before joining Charles Nicolas BAZIN.
In 1902, FÈTIQUE joined the workshop of Eugène SARTORY in Paris with whom he remained until 1912. This collaboration had a strong influence on his style. During this period he also worked for his brother Victor FÉTIQUE.
In 1912, FÉTIQUE worked with CARESSA et FRANCAIS but maintained his collaboration with Eugène SARTORY.
He left CARESSA et FRANCAIS in 1934 and established his own workshop at Rue de Moscou in Paris with André DUGAD, himself a former collaborator of CARESSA et FRANCAIS. At that time, FÉTIQUE ended his collaboration with Eugène SARTORY. His style changed and became more influenced by the school of PECCATTE.

In 1927, Fétique received the diploma of  « 1er Ouvrier de France » (1st Craftsman of France) and in 1937, the « Diplôme d'Honneur » (Diploma of Honor) at the International Paris Exhibition.
