DESCRIPTION signed: AB Bartholomé and numbered α 21 Ω andinscribed: Sur ceux qui habite le pays de l'ombre de la mortune lumière resplendit plaster CATALOGUE NOTE In 1928 the art critic for Le Figaro , Arsene Alexandre,wrote that in sculpture 'Rodin reconquit les droits del'imagination, Dalou, ceux de la grand tradition, Bartholomé, ceuxde la simplicité des silhouettes et de la sobriété expressive demodèle.' Indeed, Bartholomé was a talented and profound artist. He wastrained as a painter and studied under the tuteledge of Jean-LéonGérôme (1824-1904). From 1878 until 1886 he exhibited hisnaturalistic paintings at the Salon des ArtistesFrançais . The death of his wife the following year had adevastating affect on the artist. Struck by deep depression,Bartholomé ceased his practice until his good friend Edward Degas(1834-1917) encouraged him to sculpt his wife's tombstone. Inspired by the project, he commenced work on the Monument auxMorts for the Père Lachaise cemetery in 1899. It was deemed"one of the greatest expressions of symbolist sculpture." In 1895,he introduced a plaster model of the project at the Salon of theNational Society of Fine Arts in Paris, musée des beaux-arts deLyon (Inv. 1997-9). On 1 November 1899 the monument was opened tothe public. There were ninety-eight thousand visititors on itsinaugural day. The monument assumes the form an Egyptian mastaba (a forerunner ofthe pyramid). It is composed of a series of high reliefs in stonearranged in two registers. The central relief of the monument is aseated female figure with her arms outstretched in a Christiangesture of blessing and resurrection. With her open and expansivepose, she is an allegory of the monument's inscription. Bartholomé created various partial studies of the monument. Thisreduced workshop version of the central panel preservers a momentin the sculptor's practice and, as such, exhibits all the sombrebeauty and refinement of Bartholomé's masterpiece.

signed: ABartholomé bronze, dark brown patina

CATALOGUE NOTE
Originally a painter, Bartholomé took up sculpture after the death of his wife in 1887. He is best known for his figures of mourning female nudes, mostly taken from his central oeuvre, the Monument aux morts in the Pierre Lachaise cemetery in Paris. Although this model was an independent study, it relates to one of the figures of a grieving girl to the right of the monument. In his obituary of the artist, published in Le Figaro in 1928, Arsène Alexandre praised the 'simplicity of silhouette and sobriety of expression' in Bartholomé's work. Bartholomé's Petite fille pleurant was exhibited in marble at the Salon in 1893. The Salon marble is now in the Hermitage Museum, St Petersberg. A bronze cast is in the Musée d'Orsay, and an unusual limestone version, purchased from the artist, is in the Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen.
