Catalogue Note Born in Aube, Boucher studied with Marius Ramus in his home town before moving to Paris to study under Paul Dubois. He won a medal for his 1874 debut Salon exhibit ofL'Enfant à la fontaine. In 1900 he was awarded a Grand Prix at the Exposition Universelle and was later made anOfficier Grand Croixof the Légion d'Honneur in 1925. Boucher was particularly intrigued by the effect of representing soft skin against rough rock and repeatedly explored variations on this theme, carving his models in three-quarter relief. Most well-known are versions of his modelsVolubilisandLa Philosophie de l\’histoire.The present bronze, which is a variation on a bronze figure onthe monument of Auguste Burdeau at the Père-Lachaise cemetery in Paris, is based on a plaster cast which was first executed just before 1902.

Description:
Sale 1802 Lot 34 Alfred Boucher (French, 1850-1934) "Au But" patinated bronze cast signature, a "Siot-Decauville/Fondeur/Paris" foundry mark and numbered 145 L" along edge of self-base, stamped "France" in several places along side of self-base, presented on a stepped black marble plinth. overall h. 19-1/2", w. 26-1/2", d. 13" Notes: Of humble origins, Boucher was born into a farming family of less than modest means. As a young man, he entered the service of the sculptor Joseph-Marius Ramus (1805-1888) as a gardener. Ramus saw the artistic potential in his new servant and accepted him into his studio. Boucher was never to forget this fortuitous opportunity, and served as a mentor for many young sculptors, most notably the young Camille Claudel, and was known for his generosity and philanthropy. In 1902 he formed the La Ruche studio in Montparnasse for struggling artists. The model for the sculpture presented here was exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1886 where it was awarded a first class medal and widely admired for its exploration of the powerful, straining athletic body. A large-scale version was commissioned by the government to be prominently placed in Jardin du Luxembourg. The three figures are all modeled on studies of Boucher's friend, the explorer Pierre-Gabriel Bonvalot (1853-1933), and the resultant sculpture is a masterful depiction of the desperation of the athletes to reach the finish line.
