'Automobiliste' by Guiraud-Rivière, 1927

Maurice Guiraud-Rivière (French, 1881 – 1947)

A highly important bronze sculpture depicting a racing driver at the wheel, mounted on a shaped veined marble plinth, with crisp, impressed signature M. GUIRAUD RIVIÈRE, and foundry stamp in the bronze.

It is probable that this is the ‘E.A’ (‘epreuve d’artiste’ or ‘artist’s proof’), due to the exceptional clarity of the casting and sharpness of the signature.

Length: 21 inches (53 cm).

Literature: ‘Art Deco and other Figures’ by Brian Catley, 1978, p.178.
