Reproduction patinated by hand. Mold made from an imprint of the original work exhibited at the Musée d'Orsay. The most famous sculpture by François Pompon, the White Bear brings him a late but resounding success at the Salon of 1922. The medium economy gives an iconic presence to the work that finds its strength on a monumental scale. Edited later in different sizes and materials, it is a perfect illustration of the style that triumphed in the 1920s.
