Description:
Albert Bartholomé FRENCH LA FONTAINE 1848 - 1928 signed: ABar Tholomé. sc. white marble 87cm., 34¼in. Catalogue Note Albert Bartholomé was an autodidact who focused on painting for much of his early career. After the tragic early death of his wife in 1886, he devoted himself to sculpting. Many of his works exude a peaceful melancholy, which can also be found in his most famous Monument to the Dead at Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris, finished in 1899. Together with Rodin's Gates of Hell, this has often been seen as one of the greatest expressions of symbolist sculpture. Bartholomé won the Grand Prize for sculpture at the Exposition Universelle in 1900, and continued to have a successful career as a sculptor. The present marble, La Fontaine, was first modelled in plaster by the sculptor in 1896 (Burollet, op. cit. S. 28/A), intended as a preparatory plaster for a marble to be exhibited at the Salon de la Société nationale des Beaux-Arts. Bartholomé retained the plaster in his studio, which inspired several later versions in bronze and marble, one of which was recorded as part of his widow's collection in 1928. Another version in marble, dating to 1905, is part of the Imperial Collection in Japan. The present La Fontaine, with its fluid lines and organic structure, presents the opportunity to acquire an impressive marble by the important symbolist sculptor who has been recently 'rediscovered' (see Burollet, op. cit.).

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.
