UNIVERS DU BRONZE, Henri LAURENS, Femme couchée à la draperie

Founded in 1986, the Univers du Bronze Gallery mainly exhibits bronzes by major sculptors of the last two centuries, with a predilection for The Golden Age – 1830-1930.

The artists exhibited include Barye, Fratin, Mêne, Carpeaux, Rodin, Bourdelle, Bugatti and Pompon.

Michel Poletti and Alain Richarme have worked to promote this art for over twenty-three years. They have published several reference books and are currently working on a book called ‘Sculpture animalière 1830-1930, un Siècle d’or’.
