CONTACT US ABOUT THIS ITEM

France, early 20th century.

Pair of two life-size sculptures, brother and sister, the boy sitting cross-legged and the girl on a stump holding a play ball in her hands.

This work of art is in plaster and distinguished by a high-quality singular finish resembling bronze that makes these sculptures very unique and surprising. The execution is characterized by a crude inspiration, giving a rough lively appearance.

These sculptures come from the sunroom of a private castle in the La Loire region and the previous owner gave attribution to Charles Albert Despiau (1874-1946) who worked with Rodin, but that we have not been able to document. It is true that Despiau worked with different mediums and several of his sculptures were life-sized and with a "crude" finish.
