Our reproduction is molded directly from an original bronze, Femme à sa toilette
(Woman at her Toilet
), from around 1909 in the Museum's collection by Jane Poupelet (French, 18781932). Born in the rugged and beautiful Dordogne region of France, Poupelet reportedly began creating glazed earthenware figures of the barnyard animals and villagers from her rural surroundings at the age of three. Poupelet’s talent as a sculptor and draftsman was recognized early on, and her work admired for its “quality of design” informed by a “delicate sense of volume in light” and “harmony of form.”
Bonded bronze. Hand patinated. 16 1/2''H x 22''L x 8''W.
