Pompon Polar Bear Baccarat Crystal
François Pompon (Saulieu 1855 - Paris 1933) Animals Replicas
This sculpture of a polar bear, presented at the Salon in 1922, made the success of François Pompon at the age of 67.
Son of a cabinetmaker, François Pompon (Saulieu 1855-Paris 1933) entered the school of fine arts (Ecole des Beaux-Arts) of Dijon after having earned his living in Saulieu as a stone and wood worker. He studied architecture and sculpture and acquired basic knowledge in engraving.
Especially known as a sculptor of animals, he exalted lyricism in light by polished surfaces with an economy of detail. After having been placed at the "Jardins des Plantes", the three hundred pieces bequeathed by F. Pompon were transferred to Dijon, at the Musée des Beaux-Arts.
