"Le Coq" Sculpture by Roger Capron


A highly stylized figure of a rooster by the great French ceramist, Roger Capron. Marvelous reduction and development of the familiar forms that make up the body of a rooster. One is particularly drawn to the rendering of the bird's two sets of claws as a single ring of large talons encircling the base, the exaggerated comb and wattle framing a minimal head, the representation of the tail feathers as an almost architectural canopy.


  • Condition
    Excellent. There is a small glaze loss at the bottom of the base of the sculpture. This is a minor flaw, and can be restored at the buyer's request, at no extra cost..
