Description:
Jean-Léon Gérôme 1824-1904 FRENCH BUST OF MADELEINE JULIETTE, THE ARTIST'S DAUGHTER signed: JL. GEROME and titled: MADELEINE partially tinted white marble 66cm., 26in. Catalogue Note Madeleine Juliette was the fifth and final child born to the painter Jean-Léon Gérôme and his wife Marie in 1875. In 1863 Gérôme had married the daughter of the art publisher and dealer, Adolphe Goupil. The marriage cemented a relationship that had significant financial benefits for both artist and publisher. The prints produced and sold by Goupil after Gérôme’’s Salon canvasses made Gérôme a household name and increased the prices for the original paintings, which Goupil also sold. In the year of his marriage, Gérôme was Goupil’’s most reproduced painter. Encouraged by his father-in-law, Gérôme turned to sculpture in 1878, at the age of 55. He surprised his contemporaries by bringing a youthful passion to this new medium, introducing hyper-realism and polychromy with an innovative fervour. The present bust recalls motifs from some of Gérôme’’s best-known sculptural works. The graceful twisting figure at the base of the portrait is reminiscent of the Hoop Dancer, held in the hand of Gérôme’’s Tanagra of 1890, which was later produced as a separate statuette. The head of Tanagra was also produced as a separate sculpture and its ‘broken’’ truncation is repeated in the bust of Madeleine. Gérôme returns to sculptural tropes he used in his famous portrait bust of Sarah Bernhardt, begun in 1895 and completed with polychromy in 1901. There Gérôme uses a small figure of Tragedy at the base to characterise the subject, substituted in the portrait of Madeleine by the graceful antique dancer. Sarah Bernhardt has a string of putti climbing her right shoulder, where roses entwine the base of the present bust and climb Madeleine’’s left shoulder. This marble was not the first likeness of Madeleine created by Gérôme. A portrait of his youngest daughter as a child with her dolls was painted around 1883 (sold Sotheby’’s New York, 22 RELATED LITERATURE L. des Cars, D. de Font-Reaulx and E.

GEROME white marble height 37 in. 94 cm Read Condition Report Read Condition Report Register or Log-in to view condition report Saleroom Notice Catalogue Note Jean-Léon Gérôme was among the most successful French artists of the second half of the nineteenth century. At the age of fifty-four, after a distinguished career as a painter, Gérôme took up sculpture, a medium he mastered just as he did painting. In under thirty years Gérôme produced more than seventy-five sculptures in varying materials. Three white marble figures are listed in the inventory of Gérôme’’ s atelier from January 25, 1904 and it is thought that the present marble is one of these (Inventair apres le dicis de Monsieur Gérôme. M. Boullaire, Notaire, Paris, quai Voltaire 5, p 50, item 382). See More See Less
