THE INTRICATE ISSUE OF BRONZE REPRODUCTIONS

Cet article se compose de 6 pages.
1 2 3 4 5 6



Auguste Rodin
"Torse arqué d'une femme", 1910, bronze, 86 x 48,1 x 32,2 cm

Auguste Rodin
"La Main de Dieu", 1896, marbre
94 x 82,5 x 54,9 cm

In the meantime, we cannot take for granted that a bronze reproduction should be considered as much worthy as an original work. This is definitely the case regarding paintings but not concerning bronze works, which are part of a quite messy domain since works have been duplicated at will.

Now, bronzes sold as by Degas or Daumier should be described as "after" while those produced by so many artists during the 19th Century should carry the mention "posthumous" when they have been cast after their death. Things would then be much simpler especially as many collectors go for the beauty of a piece and do not take the care of paying a close attention to the period of its casting. This is somewhat regrettable as the market for bronze works needs some cleaning up so as to avoid future controversies.
