Marcel DAMBOISE (1903-1992) Large bust of... - Lot 119 - Crait + Müller
Marcel DAMBOISE (1903-1992) Large bust of Danielle, circa 1957 Plaster with base points. Unsigned. 62 x 44 x 37 cm Inv. MD. S-051-00 PROVENANCE : - Artist's studio; - By descent. Marcel Damboise executed this portrait of his youngest daughter when she was about 16 years old. The plaster presented here, with its base points, was used for the cutting of the marble preserved in the collections of the Musée Despiau-Wlérick in Mont-de-Marsan. After a brief stay at the École des Beaux-Arts in Marseille, Marcel Damboise completed an apprenticeship as a stonemason and moved to Paris, to La Ruche, in 1926, with his friend the sculptor Louis Dideron. In 1928, he married Yvette Dorignac, daughter of the painter Georges Dorignac. He rubbed shoulders with the painter's entourage, exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants and met Paul Cornet, Charles Despiau, Aristide Maillol and Charles Malfray who became his spiritual masters. During his stay at the Villa Abd-el-Tif in Algeria, between 1932 and 1935, he executed numerous commissions, including the Monument du Fondouk, which were noticed by Albert Camus with whom he became friends. During the war, in France, he made a large female figure for the city of Bordeaux and a high relief of Saint Marcel for the church of Vitry-sur-Seine. He stayed again in Algeria from 1948 to 1954 and, on his return to Paris, was appointed professor at the École des Beaux-Arts and became a founding member of the Groupe des Neuf.
