About François Pompon - Medium - Polar Bear Statue (1923-1933)

This Polar Bear statue is a perfect replica of one of Pompon's most well-known pieces, l'Ours Blanc (the White Bear), a huge marble sculpture located at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. François Pompon was a French sculptor, most commonly recognized for his stylized animals. He exalted lyricism in light by polished surfaces with an economy of detail. The original marble sculpture is located at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. After working fifteen years as Rodin's assistant, and receiving encouragement from him, he produced some stunning works such as the Polar Bear shown at the 1922 Salon d'Automne and left nearly 300 pieces to the French state. To this day, François Pompon may be considered an influential forerunner of modern sculpture. More details on François Pompon - Medium - Polar Bear Statue (1923-1933):

    Pompon
    François Pompon was a French sculptor and animalier, most commonly recognized for his stylized animals. His career began as an apprentice marble carver in a funerary monument company. He soon after began studies in architecture, engraving, and sculpture. Pompon went on to study under the famous “animalier” Pierre Louis Rouillard at the École Nationale Supérieure Des Arts Décoratifs. Later on, he served as an assistant to Auguste <a href="https://musartboutique.com/product-category/rodin/">Rodin</a>. After completing his service to Rodin, he learned as much as he could from various other artists about Sculpting. Eventually, he had a breakthrough in 1921 with his masterpiece, White Bear. White Bear (also known as “Polar Bear in Stride”), is a huge marble sculpture located at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. It is famous for the suggestions that come from the powerful image of the bear, such as its naturalistic weight and strength, to its slow, purposeful movements. To this day, François Pompon is still considered an influential forerunner of modern sculpture, and his intricate renderings of natural life have charmed the hearts of millions.  He has had profound effects on naturalistic sculpting and other areas of modern sculpture.
