Lot Essay

cf. Bryan Catley, Art Deco and Other Figures, 1978, p.60, for an illustration of this model.

Carrier-Belleuse stands out not only as the most prolific artist of his day, but as the one whose oeuvre touches upon every possible outlet available in the decorative arts. He used his prodigious talent in all medium - from terracotta to bronze, marble and gold, creating works on many different scales and many different uses - from monumental woks such as the Hebi Endormie at the Musie d'Orsay to trophies, clocks, statuettes, vases and jewelery.
