'Boxers' bronze by Marcel-André Bouraine (1886-1948)

About

A very dynamic bronze sculpture of two sparring boxers, with a rich dark patine to the bronze, the two figures set on a bronze sôcle, bearing the sculptors signature and foundry mark for AG of Paris, dated 1924. Mounted on the original black figured, marble base. Provenance: Exhibited at Concours d’Art des Jeux Olympiques de Paris, in 1924. Marcel Bouraine was born in Pontoise, near Paris in 1886, and studied under the great sculptor Jean-Alexandre Falguiere (1841-1900) who had re-introduced and re-emphasized realism in 19th Century sculpture. Bouraine served in the French Army during World War I and was captured and interned in Switzerland until 1918. It was shortly afterwards that his unique talent began to shine. In 1922, he exhibited at the Salon des Tuileries, and the following year exhibited for the first of numerous occasion at the prestigious Salon d’Automne. Bouraine’s high Art Deco style was exciting and popular, and his work was in strong demand. He mainly used the prestigious Susse Frères foundry (which had been established in the 18th Century) and executed a number of works for Arthur Goldscheider’s La Stele and l’Evolution groups. He also worked in glass being commissioned by maître verrier Gabriel Argy-Rousseau (1885-1953) to create a series of pate-de-verre figurines, fountains and luminaires. He also executed two major commissions for the prestigious 1937 Paris International Exhibition.
