Marcel GIMOND (1894-1961). Portrait of a young girl Model created around 1914. Bronze head with brown patina. Signed M Gimond and bears the stamp of the foundryman E. Godard Cire Perdue at the back. Resting on a wooden cubic base. H. 32 cm, base H. 15 cm BIBLIOGRAPHIE : Paul Fierens, Marcel Gimond, Collection Les Sculpteurs nouveaux, Librairie Gallimard, 1930, plaster model reproduced p. 17. Through these two portraits, Marcel Gimond shows his attachment to figurative sculpture. He mainly created busts of famous people, politicians and artists. He was particularly interested in the physical and psychological study of the models. The balance of the composition and the nature of the expression of these heads reflect his search for reality and life. The sculptor is inspired both by his own reflections on sculpture, his training at the École des Beaux-Arts in Lyon and his travels where he discovered the great sculptors of Antiquity and the Renaissance.
