Sculpture in bronze with a "dark blue-grey" patina, traditional method using a blowtorch and lost wax, Rosini Art Foundry.

The source of inspiration for Sophie de Fournas is "Femme nue se coiffant", a pastel drawing by Edgar Degas made in the 1880s on fine green vellum, faded, mounted on the original cardboard exhibited in New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Through the drawings of the painter Degas, Sophie de Fournas finds an infinite source of inspiration for her sculptures. The nudes occupy a primordial place in the universe of Degas as in hers. These naked women entering or leaving the bath, are found in their deepest intimacy, in their care, their toilet... This energy as a form of Meditation helped her to focus on healing, then on Consolation after illness and finally on Beatitude. This sculpture is part of a series created by Sophie that expresses the interiority of the body and mind but also the fusion with the feelings and the needs found. Available immediately.

Through the drawings of the painter EDGAR DEGAS, Sophie de Fournas finds an infinite source of inspiration for her sculptures. NUS occupies a primordial place in Degas' universe as in his. These naked women entering or leaving the BATH, find themselves in their deepest intimacy, in their care, their toilet ... This energy as a form of MEDITATION helped her to focus on HEALING, then on CONSOLATION afterwards. illness and finally on BLESSED. Each of the statues in this series expresses the interiority of body and mind but also the fusion with their own feelings and rediscovered needs!

Sophie de Fournas comes from a family passionate about Painting and Sculpture. His great-grandmother Aary-Max was a Sculptor (awarded at the INDEPENDANTS) and a Poet. His great-grandfather was an Art Collector. He was thus the first gallery owner of CHAGALL. In the newspaper "Rapide" of March 14, 1911 "" Our Toulouse artists will once again be represented with dignity at the National Exhibition of the Grand Palais, which will soon open in Paris. This delicate sculptor Aary-Max exhibits two statues which will not fail to attract attention by the safety of the lines, the precision of the model and the truth of the attitudes…. Aary-Max exhibited two years in a row at INDEPENDANTS where her success was real…. "

It is quite naturally that she feels the need to revive and honor the elders and especially Degas whom she admires specifically for these naked women drawn and worked tirelessly.

Today, her art is still figurative ... Fascinated and passionate about the human being and more particularly the Woman, she works by seeking to touch the expression, the humanity, the intimacy and the emotion that he clear. For a long time, most of his sculptures were in patinated terracotta, worked with patience and precision, from live models for many years, then from photos, now from drawings. Today, she devotes herself primarily to bronze, which gives her terracotta another dimension and gives her the joy of applying different color variations thanks to the oxidation of nitrates worked with a torch.
