Bronze sculpture details
Who is regarding who? Is the viewer regarding the artwork, or the artwork regarding the viewer? Gautier sets up a perfect double-cross of perspective(s).
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
The artistic theme of the internationally renowned French woman Marie-Madeleine Gautier, who was educated at the Paris École des Beaux-Arts, is one that has been typical of sculpture from time immemorial: the human being. More specifically, it is the female form, which she has for decades been moulding in ever new variations and exploring as an anatomical as well as artistic challenge.
