About

Jacques Duval-Brasseur (1934-2021), Fish Sculpture, Gilt bronze and stone base, signed, Unique piece, circa 1973, Produced and signed/ D.Brasseur. Measures: Height 90 cm, marble cube: width 20 cm, depth 20 cm. He was born in 1934 in Tours where he lived until 1939. He spent his childhood, the war in Algiers and then returned to France in the Corentin. At 17, he broke up with his family, he then left for Cherbourg "with 600 bullets in his pocket" and went to enroll at the Beaux-Arts in the city. The courses he took there while doing various jobs to survive, will confirm an artistic vocation that he has felt since childhood. However, he will have to wait ten years. A decoration department entrusted to him by a company paves the way for him. He then takes the opportunity to start creating objects, sculpting using all the materials he can recover from breakers or scrap dealers. He made his first abstract sculptures in sheet metal of cars, insects with moped tanks at the time when Caesar, whom he did not know, also drew his fantastic bestiary from scrap metal. He instinctively works the technique, gropes his way, tries to tame the materials and engages with them in a struggle to get the most out of them.
