The great deer - François Pompon
Reproduction with hand patina. Mold made from an impression of the original work exhibited in Arnhem.
François Pompon found his models of wild and exotic animals in the winter at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris.
"It is the movement that determines the form", so he followed their movements in order to represent their gait as faithfully as possible.
The economy of means gives an iconic presence to the work which finds its strength in the monumental scale.
