Polar Bear- François Pompon
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.
