BRONZE "LYING INDIAN" AFTER EDOUARD DROUOT
Bronze sculpture of a native American in brown and green patina after Edouard Drouot. It represents a long-haired native American dressed in a hairy loincloth and a feathered headdress lying on the ground. His distant gaze seems focused as he closes his hand on his bow. The terrace is treated as earth covered with vegetation and is signed E.DROUOT. The whole rests on a rectangular base in green marble. This representation is a cast after a plaster model presented in 1913 at the Salon.
Edouard DROUOT (1859-1945) was a French sculptor, a student of Emile Thomas and Mathurin Moreau at the Beaux-Arts in Paris. From 1889 onwards, he presented sculptures at the Salon that were characterised by their movement and the expressiveness of the scenes. He particularly liked exotic figures of Amerindians and Asians.
