Object Description

This pair of sculptures by Jean Jules Salmson, made of patinated bronze, depicts a male Arab warrior (‘Le Guerrier Arabe’) and a female water carrier (‘La Porteuse’). The male figure presents a dominant posture, his right elbow extending strongly into space. His weapons of war accompany him on his body: the hilt of his sword and handle of his pistol protrude from his sashed waist, and his long rifle is draped over his back. The female figure, much softer in pose and appearance, wears a robe and holds her water jug in her hand.

Salmson was a master bronzier, and his ability to produce beautiful, almost polychromatic patinas is on full display in this pair. Each figure is signed on the base ‘SALMSON.

Male figure- Height 56cm, width 23cm, depth 20cm
Female figure- Height 54cm, width 20cm, depth 20cm
