This large and impressive bust by the Martel brothers represents their close friend Paul Signac, the renowned Neo-Impressionist painter. It was executed just prior to Signac’s death in 1935 and so provides a rare and contemporary portrait sculpture of the living artist.
Jan and Joël Martel were identical twin brothers who collaborated together as sculptors throughout their lives. The brothers worked in a range of media, including traditional materials such as plaster, bronze and stone, as well as new ones such as ceramic, aluminum and reinforced concrete. During the mid-1920s their work evolved from stylized realism to greater abstraction, although they never fully abandoned figural reference. They were also famous for their animal subjects, most notably birds, in terracotta and porcelain.
