Doris Jarowsky
'General (Napoleon)' original bronze sculpture by Doris Jarowsky 1960s abstract

ca. 1966

$750

About

This small-scale bronze of the General Napoleon by American artist Doris Jarowsky is an excellent example of the sculpture of the 1960s. The sculpture is at once traditional and avant-garde: the subject of Napoleon is shown standing on a pedestal, much as though he were standing on a tall pedestal as a public historical marker. At the same time, however, he is constructed out of torn sheets of clay and wax, each assembled together like cubist planes with rough edges before being cast in bronze. These rough surfaces and edges are markers of artists exploring the materiality of their medium, which can be seen in the works of other artists of the period such as Harry Bertoia and Alberto Giacometti. bronze sculpture on walnut base 5.63 x 2.75 x 2.5 inches, bronze 7.38 x 2.75 x 3.38 inches, with base Overall good condition; no structural issues, scratches or bends; some buildup of dust
