About

Alexandre Zankoff (Aleksander TZANKOV, signed AL.ZANKOFF) A very fine Art Deco bronze of two polar bears walking side by side, the animals with all-original patina set on a deep white marble plinth. Cast by the foundry of Marcel Guillemard, the bronze is signed AL. ZANKOFF, and bears the edition number 8 to one of the feet. French circa 1930. The son of politician Kristo Zankov and brother of revolutionary Georges Zankov, sculptor and painter Alexander Zankov was born in Sofia in 1900 and died there in 1982. He trained at the Academy of Arts in Florence and then in Rome, completing his studies in 1927. In 1929, his attraction for sculpture encouraged him to perfect his apprenticeship with Émile-Antoine Bourdelle. He returned to Bulgaria permanently in 1934, and some of his works are part of the collection held at at the National Gallery in Sofia, along with museums in Kazanlak (Bulgaria) and Moscow. His Bulgarian sculptures, mostly monumental statuaries, remain his most famous. Size overall: 23 x 8 x 9½ inches (58 x 20 x 24 cm).
