Description :

Ours Blanc | 11 cm. François Pompon (1855-1933)
Replica in resin of the very famous "Ours blanc" of the French sculptor François Pompon, exhibited at the "Musée des Beaux Arts de Dijon".  François Pompon is a French sculptor, student of Rodin and famous for his stylized animal figurines.

At his fifteengh he takes service with a stonemason in Dijon where he learns the principles of sculpting and attens evening classes at "l’École des Beaux Arts". During his education he meets Pierre-Louis Rouillard , a sculptor of animal figues - who possibly became a source of inspiration for the work which would make his famous later on. In 1882, he ends up taking service with Rodin where he becomes head of his studio three years later.  It is not until 1919 that his work starts attracting more interest. Not until he is 67 years old does he get his final breakthrough with the exhibition of l'Ours blanc in plaster at the Salon des Artistes Français. Successful exhibitions follow in Tokyo and Osaka and the ice bear, which had become famous by then, is produced in marble.

Upon his death Pompon Left nearly 300 pieces to the French State which were eventually displayed  at the Musée des Beaux Arts in Dijon. The Musée d'Orsay in Paris has a large collection of plaster models.

The "Ours blanc" is world-famous.
