Art Deco French Patinated Bronze "Le Grande Panthère Marchant" by Maurice Prost

About

A striking iconic early 20th century Art Deco bronze study of a prowling panther with rich black patination lightly rubbed to a golden hue on the raised areas, which captures the eye and heightens areas of definition on the surface. Raised on a wedge shaped polished black marble plinth, signed M Prost and inscribed with the Susse Freres foundry mark. Cast in three sizes this is the largest version and is particularly impressive. Maurice Prost, French, 1894–1967 Born in Paris he specialized in animal figures and groups. He exhibited at Salon des Artistes Français, and was awarded the Légion d'Honneur in 1933. Fate dealt him a cruel blow when he had to have his arm amputated after being wounded by a bullet in the first months of World War I in 1914. He consequently abandoned his profession, as a jeweller, and opted for his passion, animal sculpture. Widely acknowledged by the public, the critics and the art professionals of his time, during his career he received the highest praise. His work, rich and remarkable, illustrates the modernity of Art Deco, one of the richest periods of the 20th century.
