Pair of two lifesize 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 rare 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 sunroom 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. It is true that Despiau worked with different medium and several of his sculptures were life-sized with a "crude" finish. less
