About

Incised on base with signature, "P. Cormier", for Joseph Jules Emmanuel Cormier (French, 1869-1950) with incised legend, "Epreuve d'Artiste" (Artist's Proof), edition/limitation number "2/100" and bearing the artist's impressed figural seal. N.B. Main detail photo shows true color of terra cotta. An early 20th-century, terracotta figurative statuette of a man in classical dress and a naked woman embracing and kissing passionately. A lyrical handling of this eternal subject showing great refinement and delicacy of detail. Joseph Cormier first studied at the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris and, subsequently, with Louis-August Hiolin. He exhibited widely and with success including at the Salons d'Automne, Tuileries and the Salons des Artistes Francais, of which he was elected a full member in 1893. He was the recipient of numerous prizes, juried awards and medals (1898, 1921, 1925, 1928) and was made a Companion of the Legion of Honor for his services to Art. Joseph Cormier is well listed in all relevant artworks including Benezit's Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs (Vol.III, p.885) and his works may be found in the permanent collections of museums worldwide including the Museum of Modern Art and the Petit Palais.
