On the fiftieth anniversary of his death, an exhibition devoted to Paul Dardé. Centered principally on his Fawn theme, the exhibition will transport us back to the 1920s, when Dardé first worked on this theme.
Marking a new period for the sculptor, all his works on this theme are imbued with a remarkable vitality and movement. The exhibition will show a selection of works - some never previously seen in public – tracing his development of the Fawn theme. Backed-up with preparatory drawings, the sculptures shed new light on his treatment of the theme and give us glimpses of large-scale projects that were never completed. An additional part of the exhibition is devoted to his representations of women – both sacred or profane – and highlights his capacity to imbue a piece of sculpture with feeling.
