Roger Bezombes Furniture

French, 1913-1994
Roger Bezombes (1913 - 1994) was a French painter, sculptor, medallist and designer. He studied in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and was much influenced by his friendship with Maurice Denis. He worked principally as a painter, adopting the saturated colours of Henri Matisse in landscapes and figure studies often based on observation of 'exotic' cultures, notably Mediterranean and North African. In the mid-1960s a new rawness emerged in his work, derived from 'primitive' examples and new materials associated with his experiments in other media. He executed tapestry designs for Aubusson, posters (winning the Grand Prix de l'Affiche Francaise in 1984), costumes and sets for ballets at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York, reliefs and murals. In 1965 he took up medal-making, expressing in his numerous metallic works for the Paris Mint that obsession with found objects which is also evident in his large-scale sculpture and in his posters.

Bronze Sculpture Lioness / Roger Godchaux Jewish Artist & Susse Lost Wax Bibelot

Bronze Sculpture Lioness / Roger Godchaux Jewish Artist & Susse Lost Wax Bibelot . An important bronze sculpture By the great Jewish Bronze Master animalier , Estampille 1- Cire perdue Lost Wax Stamp "La Lionne" by Roger Godchaux. See Photo 2- 2- With A Stamp of Susse. See Photo 3- 3- the signature of the Artist on the bronze. See Photo Incredible Executed and very fine details with Dark Brown Patina with a hue of green . The movement of the lionesse is very graceful and sinuous (as most of the lion Sculpture he produced) Mounted on a black stone base 5 1/2" x 11 1/2" Antique Dealer West Hollywood CA Melrose Ave La Cienega Blvd. Godchaux Né à Vendôme le 21 décembre 1878 et mort le 6 mars 1958 à Paris. Roger Godchaux Sculpteur animalier regularly produces animal drawings and paintings. Thus, unlike his sculptures which mainly represent wild animals, especially elephants and felines that he was going to study at the Jardin des Plantes, his paintings are often inspired by farm animals that he could observe in a small village of Brie where lived the mother of his companion. He also paints commissioned portraits or portraits of his family or friends, such as Gaston Switzerland or René Huchet . But it is above all a sculptor. He made some works by direct carving of the wood. However, he mainly worked by modeling the earth. It treats surfaces by smoothing and oblique streaks. In this respect, unlike other animal sculptors like Édouard-Marcel Sandoz , François Pompon or Armand Petersen whose works are smooth, his work is close to the art of Paul Jouve which leaves apparent textures. The lioness is finished with Godchaux’s distinctive surface modeling where the flesh is left textured like a wax model on the artists bench, still being formed and tooled. Godchaux’s animal work is characterized by gentleness and a sensitivity towards his subjects that showcases their playfulness and personality. This is captured beautifully in the present example where her curiosity and intensity of focus are fully developed; the anatomical and muscular realism is noteworthy. The naturalistic base is signed in his standard script “Roger Godchaux” and is also signed “Susse Fres. Edit. Paris” with the Susse cachet; a tiny stamp “France” is impressed into the edge below the cachet. Models in mud are most often cast plaster. It is often in this material that he exhibits in Salons and galleries. The works for sale are cast in bronze. They are entrusted to famous founders like Susse , with whom he signs publishing contracts, or Valsuani . He also works with lesser known smelters like Gatti, Andro or Planquette. Some of his bronzes do not wear a cast iron seal. While there are some large models, most are modest in size, easily finding their place in collectors' homes. Some of his works are terracotta or sandstone. Models were published by Susse both in bronze and terracotta. Terracotta remains raw or is glazed. He also worked at the Sèvres factory in the late 1930s. Roger Godchaux , born in Vendôme on December 21 , 1878 and dead the March 6 , 1958in Paris , is a painter , draftsman and sculptor of animals French . If all domestic and wild bestiary is part of his artistic universe, it is the wild beasts and elephants that have been his favorite subjects. Figurative sculptor, he represents the animal without artifice, in his attitudes of everyday life. Roger Godchaux's father is an antique dealer. His mother, Jeanne Godchaux, is a concert pianist. He has a brother Yvan with whom he studies in Vendôme under the care of his maternal grandparents, music teachers in high school. Having joined Paris, he prepared in 1894 admission to the School of Fine Arts . He soon turned to animal art . He became a pupil of Jules Adler and Jean-Léon Gérôme . In 1896, he is a pupil of the Julian Academy . Great admirer of Antoine-Louis Barye , he will build a collection of works produced in the workshop of the master 1 . In 1905, he began to exhibit in Paris. He regularly participates in the Salon des artistes français . In 1914, he was mobilized in Saint-Lô . Reformed, he is assigned to the offices of the Ministry of War. During this period, he put his drawing skills at the service of propaganda for the Allies. After the war, he saw rue Descombes . He resumes the exhibitions at the Salon des artistes français where, in 1922, he won the bronze medal. The state orders two bronze plates for the Army Museum Library . In 1924, his second companion gives him a daughter, Luce. In 1925, the jury of the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts awarded him a silver medal. In 1927, he won the contest of car manufacturer Chenard and Walcker for the creation of an emblem for their cars. In February 1928, the State bought him a bronze sculpture: Elephant , exhibited at the National Salon of animal artists, of which he becomes the treasurer in November of the same year. It was at this time that the Newark Museum in the United States bought him works. It was also in 1928 that he won the silver medal at the Salon des artistes français. In 1929, the state bought him a sculpture ( Pigeon ) again. During the inter-war period, he exhibited regularly in various galleries: Galerie Charpentier , Galerie Georges Petit , Galerie Edgar Brandt , group of animals of the Malesherbes Art Gallery. He has friendly relations with other animals, including Henri Valette and Gaston Switzerland, with whom he regularly works at the Jardin des Plantes . In 1937, he signed a contract with the Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres for the edition of terracotta. During the Second World War , he stayed in Paris and continued to work in his studio on Boileau Street , but was forced to wear the yellow star .
