Henri Gaudier-Brzeska: Seated Fawn, 1913

Henri Gaudier-Brzeska ‘Crouching Fawn’, 1913, posthumous cast, Painted plaster I The motif of an animal seated with legs tightly folded underneath it is suggestive of Chinese animal figure carvings. This particular piece, however, was based on one of a group of pen drawings of fawns made by Gaudier-Brzeska in the same day. It is a plaster cast of a sculpture in Bath stone

Our work of the week is Henri Gaudier-Brzeska’s ‘Red Stone Dancer’ (1913-1914), currently on show as part of New Rhythms exhibition at Harewood House, Leeds. Gaudier-Brzeska’s partner Sophie described the work as “a monster descended from the stars”.  Red Stone dancer demonstrates Gaudier-Brzeska’s use of a more abstract style and reflects his interest in the ‘primitive’ artefacts he visited in the British Museum.

Our work of the week is Henri Gaudier-Brzeska's Dog. “It might be thought simple to make a sculpture like “Dog” by H. Gaudier-Brzeska, but so far as I know no one had done so in the whole world of sculpture, nor is it like any other sculptor’s work. It is essentially sculpture and at the same time is deeply realistic. I have known a child take it to bed instead of his ‘Teddy Bear’.” Jim Ede in A Way of Life
