Description:
Cecil de Blaquiere Howard AMERICAN ACCORDÉONISTE ET DANSEURS (ACCORDIONIST AND DANCERS), 1915 - 17 1888 - 1956 signed: HOWARD polychromed plaster 43cm., 16 7/8 in. Exhibited Paris, musée de l\’Orangerie, Apollinaire : Le regard du poète, 5 April-18 July 2016 On his return to Paris from the United States in 1916 Howard made some of the most innovative and idiosyncratic sculptures of his career, combining cubist forms with polychromy. In sculpture they find few precedents at the time and recall paintings from the concurrent Futurist movement in Italy, such as Giacomo Balla\’s Abstract Speed + Sound (1913-1914). The defining icon of the group is the multifaceted Accordéoniste, which, with its noisy sense of colour and motion, conjures up the evocative image of Paris dance halls. It also has a biographic aspect in that it was made at the same time that Howard appeared in Guillaume Apollinaire's Les mamelles de Tirésias in which he played the accordion and made sound effects.

CATALOGUE NOTE
Howard entered Buffalo?s Art School at the age of 13. He studied under James Earle Fraser who became his mentor and advised him to travel to Paris. Howard arrived in Paris in 1905 and studied at the Academie Julien, exhibiting for the first time at the Salon the following year. He married a French woman and lived in France for thirty-five years. He was a close friend of his fellow American ex-patriate sculptor Jo Davidson. Howard was a consummate craftsman and insisted on finishing his own marbles and chasing and patinating his bronzes. The bronzes were cast in very small editions, usually less than four. His work, though inspired by the antique, is distinctively modern and the present bronze with its smooth simplified planes is typical of his oeuvre.
