Galerie Dumonteil is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition:" Animal Spirit." Featuring carefully selected works from the past century surveying the depiction of animals in modern and contemporary sculpture. On view, a 1923 cast of Rembrandt Bugatti's "Deux Elephant Se Suivant", numbered 4; as well as a lifetime pair of sheep by François Xavier Lalanne; lifetime casts by Charles Artus and an alabaster work by Joseph Csaky; works by Roger Godchaux and Georges Lucien Guyot. This exhibition will also showcase works by our represented contemporary artists including: Daniel Daviau, Jean Marie Fiori, Mia Fonssagrives Solow, and exclusive works of Wang Keping.
The purpose of this exhibition is to follow the 20th century artists' path, to focus only on the animal in the center of the art itself in all "his" purity, wisdom, strength and even sometimes "his" exuberance.
