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

$8,900

About

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. Benezit Dictionary of Artists, Gründ, 2006, Vol. I, p. 1463 (biography) Dictionary of Western Sculptors in Bronze, James Mackey, 1977, p. 38 (biography) Art Deco and other figures, Bryan Catley, 1989, p. 41-44 (depicting a series of his work, present sculpture not included) Measurements: 18" H x 29 3/4" W (at widest point; 23 1/8" W at base) x 5 3/8" D.
