Opus N°13 La Vache Gaie
Horses and bulls have frequently been represented during antiquity as well as in the Renaissance time. This cow is a much less classical subject. Completed in 1967, five years after the previous works, this sculpture completes the animal cycle with humour and accuracy of observation. The animal is visibly happy, the lifted head, asymmetrically pointed horns and ears, the movement of the tail and the muscular tension accentuate the dynamic movement. The dimensions of this work are in proportion with those of the previous bulls. The sinuous movement of the back also relates to them.
