Marble Sculptures from 1800 to 1950
An Art Deco sculpture in white Carrara marble representing a young girl kissing a lamb. This sculpture is a typical example of the Art Deco period, the long rectangular shape of the sculpture, the haircut of the girl and the stylized representation of the lamb's wool.
The Sculpture is signed "Ch. Raphael Peyre" standing for Charles Raphaël Peyre (1872 - 1949), the French sculptor. Peyre is born in Paris. His teachers were the famous sculptors Falguière, Mercié and Th. Barrau.
Peyre was fond of symbolic or allegorical subjects, which he exhibited at the Salon from 1893 onwards. He won an honourable mention in 1894, a third-class medal in 1902, a second-class medal in 1903 and finally a travel grant in 1903.
He will be part of the Society of French Artists from 1900.
A sculpture of the artist appears at the Château de Compiègne in France.
