L. Carvin Black Panther Art Deco Bronze Sculpture

About

Extremely rare black panther bronze sculpture by Louis Albert Carvin, circa 1930. This is an example of pure cubist style in black patina, portraying a panther standing tall and proud. This fiercely cast feline has detailed musculature and sleek lines. The base is a triangular stepped marble with strong veins of black, white and gray offset against the gleaming black finish of the panther. This bears the artist signature carved into the bronze on the back leg. The body is rich black with a slight bronze cast, a powerful look with oversized paws. The piece was artistically rendered by a sculptor who spent a life time studying the form, style and movement of animals associated with the Art Deco period. This statue carries on the tradition of Bugatti, Sandoz and Paul Jouve in helping to depict and preserve these magnificent animals. Louis-Albert Carvin, 1875 – 1951. A French sculptor dedicated to the modeling of human and animal figures. He was a member of the Society of French Artists, exhibited at the fairs of this society from the late nineteenth century until 1933. Receiving an Honorable Mention in 1894. He is also the author of multiple sculptures of deer, deer, lions, lions, panthers, birds, cats, dogs (especially wolf dogs), less frequently, and also exceptional horses.
