Founder: SUSSE brothers PARIS with stamp. Lightness, sensuality, finesse of lines and shapes. Very beautiful patina of bronze.
Remarkable piece of Art Nouveau. Referenced artwork with a very high value. Very decorative when placed on a living room console or a desk. More photos available upon request.Louis Botinelly, born in Digne on January 2, 1883, is the son of a marble worker and stone mason, originally from the canton of Tessin (Switzerland) and settled in this city at the time of Louis' birth. The family later moved to Marseille, rue Saint-Pierre, in a workshop that Botinelly's father inherited upon his brother's death.
Thanks to a scholarship from the city of Marseille, Louis Botinelly was able to stay in Italy in 1902, where he worked in Jules Coutan's studio. In 1905, he ranked first at the National School of Fine Arts in Paris. He settled in the capital in 1906, where he created a large number of his works. In 1911, he received a bronze medal for his "Bear Trainer". The "Bear Trainer", a bronze group (1911).The group was formerly located on Place du Général de Gaulle. It is now situated on the Esplanade de la Tourette, facing the Church of Saint-Laurent in Marseille. This creation from 1911, signed by Louis Marcel Botinelly and awarded a bronze medal, stands on the Esplanade de la Tourette.
The artwork depicts a young acrobat dressed in a loincloth playing the tambourine, with one foot on a ball. He is teaching two bear cubs an acrobatic routine. An Italian named Vincent, whom Botinelly met at the markets and who was responsible for unloading goods, served as the model for the sculptor.Monumental statues of the four evangelists stand at each of the main dome pillars of the Cathedral of the Major in Marseille. The shapes are slender, elegant, and graceful.
The hairstyle is sophisticated and beautifully enhances the pretty smiling face. This gymnast dancer is presented nude; she gracefully performs a flexible, graceful, and almost erotic gesture.
The eye is drawn to the stunning physique of the young woman; this raw and feminine beauty, combined with a strong sense of imbalance, plunges the observer into an aesthetic and logical questioning: is such imbalance possible? One loses their bearings, feels lifted, almost weightless...This artwork presents, in certain aspects, an almost surrealistic evocation and feeling... It is a piece of great elegance and poetry. It will undoubtedly please another collector or a discerning art lover for an original, meticulous, and cultural interior decoration.
