    Le Très grand ours, 1994-2015

    300 x 150 x 150 cm

    Galerie Mitterrand, Paris

    The presentation of the monumental sculpture Le Très grand ours marks the commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the death of François-Xavier Lalanne (1937-2008). Le Très grand ours is wholly representative of François-Xavier Lalanne’s signature style, featuring a playful bestiary and characterised by a synthetic, stylized approach combining pure yet rigorous forms which are inscribed within the lineage of 20thcentury artists from Pompon to Brancusi, who was notably his neighbour at his studio in Montparnasse.
