1930s Antique Lifesize Brother and Sister Sculptures in Bronze Finish
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 sun room of a private castle in La Loire region and the previous owner gave an 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 medium and severa of his sculptures were life-sized and with a "crude" finish.
