Albéric Collin (1886 -1962) - Seated monkey, Gibbon of Gabon

Sculpture representing a seated monkey, number 4/8, signed Albéric Collin, cast Rocher in Paris, wax lost. Very nice quality of nuanced patina
.
Albéric Collin is trained at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. He is part of the Antwerp group. He is very close to Rembrandt Bugatti with whom he will become a friend. He frequents the zoological garden of the city where he finds an inexhaustible source of inspiration.

The artist sculpts exclusively animals, both wild and domestic. His sculptures are often cast in bronze by the process of lost wax.

Albéric Collin created an elephant mounted by blacks, a monumental sculpture, on the occasion of the Brussels World Fair of 1935 and was exhibited in front of the Belgian Congo Pavilion by René Schoentjes. Blacks are of the mangbetu ethnic group. The sculpture was then installed in front of the Royal Museum of Central Africa in Tervuren, on the side of the road.

1921: gold medal at the Salon des Independants in Paris
