French Art Deco Bronze Sculpture"Leaping Stag & Hind" by André-Vincent Becquerel

About the Item

An exquisite and rare Art Deco bronze sculpture of a Leaping Stag and Hind circa 1930-40, the model is sealed with the Susse Freres foundry cachet and Becquerel's signature is captured directly from the mold and transferred into the bronze. There is a repeated emphasis of graceful cyma-curves in the deer, most prominently in their symmetrical neck profiles and the curves of their backs and bellies, but also in the incised sweeping lines that texture their coats. The naturalistic foliage of the base rises into a bush with a form of undulating and chaotic outgrowth that pitches forward like a cascading ocean wave. All elements of the work seek to emphasize forward movement and momentum. Artist listings & bibliography: Animals in Bronze, Christopher Payne, 2002, p. 396 (biography) E.

  • French Bronze Rare Sculpture of a Panther Bunting Signed André Vincent Becquerel
    By André Vincent Becquerel
    Located in New York City, NY
    A rare and fabulous French Art Deco large bronze signed sculpture of a bunting panther by Andre Vincent Becquerel, French, 1893-1981 This lovely cast, in a warm dark brown patina with green undertones is sculpted with highly stylized anatomical details. The sculpture rests on self base. Becquerel's favorite subject matter was cats. He often captured them in a natural setting, stretching, stalking, clawing at a tree stump or walking in tandem. The model offered here with the panther bunting/rubbing against a stump of a tree is a rare version. This innate feline behavior is seen as a sign of affection, or of a transfer of their scent to claim territory or marking you as a friend. Becquerel was born in northern France. He attended the École des Beaux-arts in Paris and studied in the ateliers of Hector Lemaître and Prosper Lecourtier, the Animalier sculptor. He also worked with Charles Valton, who had studied under both Barye and Fremiet, two other renown animalier sculptors. He began exhibiting at the Salon des Artistes Français in 1914 and continued to do so for the rest of his career. In 1944 Becquerel was awarded a bronze medal by The ‘Artistes Français’ and a gold medal in 1945. In 1952 he won the Prix de l’Yser, which made him hors concours and thus above the future competition process.
