Christophe Fratin (1801-1864) Fratin by... - Lot 57 - Crait + Müller
Christophe Fratin (1801-1864) Fratin by himself Bronze with light brown patina Stamped "FRATIN" on the back H. 19,5 cm If the self-portraits of 19th century French artists are often tinged with complacency, Chris tophe Fratin represents himself in the form of a portrait-charge. The disproportionate limbs, the grimacing expression of the face and the numerous animals for attributes characterize this amusing portrait in the manner of the famous caricatures of his contemporary Edouard Dantan.
