Art Deco 'Polar Bear' Bronze by Pompon

About

François Pompon: ‘Ours Blanc’ (Polar Bear), a fine Art Deco bronze sculpture with dark brown patina of a striking polar bear. This sculpture was first exhibited at the 1922 Salon d’Autonne in Paris, this example cast posthumously (circa 1960). With impressed signature POMPON to the back leg and the foundry stamp of Valsuani. Notes: François Pompon was born in Burgundy and moved to Paris where he became the assistant to Rodin and studied under other celebrated sculptors of the era. He first found recognition in his own right with this piece, a monumental study in polished white marble, unveiled in 1922 and that now resides in the Musée d’Orsay. Pompon is regarded as the forerunner of modern sculpture and influenced Brancusi and others of later generations.
