Léon-Ernest Drivier (1878-1951) Young mother Model created around 1903 Bronze with brown patina Signed " DRIVIER " and numbered " 1/50 " on the base. Foundry stamp " MONTAGUTELLI Paris Cire perdue ". H. 24 cm A student of Barrias at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Léon-Ernest Drivier began his career as a practitioner for Auguste Rodin. A quarrel between the two artists over his marble transposition of the master's Day and Night and their irreversible break-up allowed him to explore other avenues, notably those of the independents and then of the "Bande à Schnegg" whose members advocated a liberation from official art and academic classicism. In 1923, Drivier even became one of the founders of the Salon des Indépendants. With his elders Pompon, Bourdelle, Bernard and Despiau and his younger brothers Wlérick, Janniot, Osouf and Dejean, Drivier became one of the leaders of French modern sculpture. He received many private and public commissions, decorative or monumental.
