Bronze with clear patina depicting the famous character from the Commedia Dell'Arte, and signed "Bouret" at its base.
Eutrope Bouret (1833-1906) was the son of Charles-Louis Bouret, bronze editor, and Catherine Rigaud, seamstress. A pupil of Louis-Charles-Hippolyte Buhot, he made his debut at the Salon of 1875. Bouret obtained an honorable mention in 1885 with a marble statue representing Psyche in the court of Venus, and continued to exhibit almost every year until 1903.
Titled on its base "Au clair de la Lune", my friend Pierrot… a famous nursery rhyme popularized in the 18th century, an integral part of French heritage. His air having rocked many generations of children.
Pierrot, an orphan, is presented to us standing, playing the mandolin, his head following his slightly inclined body and his right leg forward. In this position, it is easy for us to imagine him singing a melody accompanied by his instrument, to seduce the audience.
The budding actor wears his supple hat, his traditional shirt contrasted with large buttons and he wears small slippers with pompoms, faithful to the fanciful costume, known to all. The artist has finely carved the costume of this joker character.
Imbued with realism, this Pierrot bronze will attract attention with its free and joyful bodily expression. Let your sensitivity awaken by this young dreamer in search of love.
