Object description :

"José-maria David (1944-2015), Sculpture Hippopotamus Open Mouth N ° 1/8 Foundry Chapon."
José-Maria DAVID (1944-2015), sculptor passionate about the animal world. Considered one of the greatest animal sculptors of his time and the master of the new animal school. As a child, he made his toys out of plasticine or clay. An antique dealer by trade, it was not until 1986 that he devoted himself completely to the art of sculpture. The creation in connection with animal beauty takes all his time and all his energy. Observation through the search for beauty becomes obsessive and is reflected in his works by an extraordinary life and sense of movement. Doctor Hachet, laureate of the Académie des Beaux-Arts, defines José-Maria DAVID's style as "a consequent bestiary from which strength and dynamism emanate". This magnificent work, titled "Hippopotamus open mouth" bears the artist's signature above the left hind leg, the stamp of the founder (Chapon) as well as the indication of the 1/8 proof. It is the reflection of the talent of this immense artist. A certificate of authenticity signed by the artist will be given to the purchaser. Work in good condition.
