Marcel-André Bouraine, born in Pontoise, France, was a sculptor deeply influenced by realism, particularly under the direction of Jean-Alexandre-Joseph Falguière.His career was marked by notable exhibitions, with contributions to the Salon des Tuileries and the Salon d'Automne. During World War I, Bouraine was captured and interned in Switzerland. After the war, he collaborated with prestigious French companies, creating small-scale sculptures for Susse Frères, La Verrier, and Arthur Goldscheider.
In 1928, Bouraine received a commission from Gabriell Argy-Rousseau, who gave him a series of figurines, including female nudes in translucent glass paste, a fountain, and an illuminated group. He undertook major projects for the 1937 Paris International Exhibition, demonstrating his versatility with a colored cement bas-relief for a fountain and a faience statue representing ceramics for the Sèvres pavilion. This French Art Deco patinated bronze sculpture of an Amazonian female, modeled after a design by Marcel Bouraine, embodies his ability to capture dynamic and alluring forms. The sculpture depicts a lightly clad warrior with wind-swept hair, wielding a spear and poised on top of a stylized rectangle.
Bouraine's signature attests to the authenticity of this exquisite piece, showcasing the artist's mastery in representing strength and beauty. This Art Deco masterpiece is a stunning representation of Bouraine's contribution to the dynamic and innovative artistic landscape of his time.Height 12 inches, width 15 inches.
