ANTOINE BOURDELLE

(1861-1929) French sculptor and teacher. He became one of the pioneers of 20th century monumental sculpture. Auguste Rodin became a great admirer of his work and in 1893 Antoine Bourdelle joined Rodin as his assistant where he soon became a popular teacher.

Known primarily as a sculptor, Bourdelle drew throughout his life. This sketch may have been a preliminary drawing for a larger work or created simply because the artist felt like sketching . Bourdelle signed in the lower right corner with an unusual form of his last name in printed capitol letters. Docketing in French on verso is likely in his hand, “Head fragment or ensemble perhaps a water color" as is a sketch of a triangle. On his business card addressed on the envelope to “Conservateur Musee du Luxembourg, Bourdelle wrote, “In haste – all my gratitude …dear Director and I can do nothing but bow. I will be left with the pleasures of drawing…Ant. Bourdelle.” A fine pairing ideal for presentation.
