XIX - XXth century sculptures
BECQUEREL André Vincent (1893-1981)
French artist well known for his animal sculptures (birds, felines). He found inspiration at the Jardin de Plantes, where he often went to observe the animals in their natural life. He started exhibiting in 1914, adopting a naturalist style, with a hint of stylisation under the influence of the modernist movements. He works on ceramic, bronze among other materials and when not entrusting his bronzes to foundries like Susse, he edited his own works, as he created his own foundry.
