A big first ! "Small Dromedary" never melted
A big first! It is the first time that the “Small Dromedary” (n° 39 of the catalogue raisonné) is born never molten of living on the sculptor. It will be thus the n° 1/8 and it is the Foundry of Art ROSINI Paris (www.fonderierosini.com) which was selected for the quality of its bronzes for the realization of this work.
Rigged out of the adjective “Small” this dromedary is not it therefore considering it measures 34 cms top and 27 cms length.
This dromedary, baby, are presented in the form of young animals which the sculptor is fond of, of which it is made a speciality. It is drawn up, on him, proudly camped on its tended legs, does not outline any intention of walk. The head is humorous, the half-opened lips. This dromedary is in the vein of the LAMA, works succeeded in 1938, but less stylized. It was entirely carried out in Nogent before 1959.
