Description

Our reproduction is molded directly from an original bronze, Femme 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. Poupelets 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.

Art History

Jane Poupelet (French, 18781932) studied under Lucien Schnegge, an eminent sculptor of the time. While Rodin was less appreciative of Poupelets style, Schnegge, a leading figure in the Bordeaux school, took great interest in Poupelets work. Their efforts to reconcile tradition with non-figurative art constituted an important counterpart to Rodins concern for the expressive powers of a given medium. Poupelet regularly exhibited in the major exhibitions of the day, including the Salon de la Socit Nationale de Beaux-Arts. During her lifetime museums and collectors alike acquired her work with great celerity, and the State honored her achievement by making her a Knight of the Legion of Honor. Despite the recognition she enjoyed by her contemporaries, her importance as an inventive and intellectually focused artist of the early twentieth century is little known today.
