20th Century French Figural Statue

$24,500

About

An arresting and powerful 20th century French carved limestone figural statue with the energy of Michelangelo's Prisoners, and the courage of Rodin in its rebellion against the idealized human form. The figure's passionate contorted pose speaks to the inner turmoils we all struggle with, and the artist's decision not to smooth over and hide their marks suggests that we're all unfinished in our quest for inner peace. The acute attention to musculature and anatomy shows the artist's respect for the sculptural traditions of the 18th and 19th centuries, while the intentional un-carved sections give a nod to Modernist masters like Rodin, Brancusi, and Giacometti. A truly remarkable piece that's beautiful from any angle.
