$3,230.13

About

A fine bronze casted sculpture of a Elephant with a calf, resting on a black Belgium marble base. The bronze has the original olive-brown patina. It is made in France, circa 1930-1940. Signed: Irénée ROCHARD. The sculpture has a beautiful patina and is in good condition. After casting the bronze is finely finished with fine chisels, for the fine details. This chiseling process was an enormously time-consuming job. Irénée Rochard was born in Villefranche sur Saône France in 1906, In a family of artists: his mother was a painter and his brother became The actor-singer Armand MESTRAL. When he chose the course of an artist’s life too, he soon turned to animal Sculpting in order to,as he used to say: pay tribute to animal. In 22 years, on leaving the Beaux-Arts School, he was the first prize-winner for A life-size panther. Many other distinctions followed, all along his career. Between the two world wars, he frequently met with the circles of animal Sculpture artists, mainly with François POMPOM and Marcel Edouard SANDOZ. He expressed his talents through bronze. He constantly used to give a manner of intelligence to his animals, to bring out their personality and gentleness. Creation of horses, monkeys, gazelles, elephants, panthers, ducks, bisons, pelicans, dromedaries, dogs, ectera. His modern workmanship gives them the typical suppleness and gracefulness of their shapes.
