Jean de la Fontinelle (French, 1900-1974)

A beautifully modelled Art Deco silvered bronze sculpture in the form of an elephant, with trunk aloft and legs resting on a heptagonal plinth as if performing in the circus. The bronze, dating from around 1930, is mounted on a rectangular green marble base, and the silvered plinth is signed L FONTINELLE.

Height: 9 inches (23 cm)
Length of base 5 inches (13 cm)

De la Fontinelle exhibited at the Exposition des Artistes Animaliers in Paris in 1929, and was a contemporary of Paul Jouve, André Margat and the legendary sculptor François Pompon. Predominantly working in ceramic, de la Fontinelle’s bronze works are rare.
