190420 Affiche petersen audfray puteaux 600x300

Edith Mannoni in his book "The bronze and the animal" says of Petersen "The animals carved by Petersen seem constructed like architectures. So that, whatever their size, they give the impression of monumentality, so much they give off the nobility and grandeur. Strangely, the sculptor has been able to discern, and render with a subtle sensitivity, the melancholy gravity frequent in animals. This impression fuse, gently, through the form of a great accuracy of volume, combining with the realism of the physical appearance the mysterious psychology of these living beings, at once so near and so distant from us.

First price of the competition of the town of Basle which each year allotted appropriations to the embellishment of public spaces. This competition, intended for a space of game for the children had as a subject the animal and childhood. Petersen proposed a new-born Calf, life size, a Golden calf. It will be the first model with life size and the first mythological animal treated with a certain humour. It gained 1,500 FR. and a notoriety, different from the other animalist ones. All the Press noticed this Calf but neither mythology nor allusion to the wealths retained. In LeJournal, Pawlowski announces a large strong Calf amusing On the other hand, the natural size the aspect lump and the side tenderizing of childhood drew attention.
