ARTIST BIO:
Born in Pontoise (Seine-et Oise), Marcel Andre Bouraine studied under Jean-Alexndre-Joseph Falguiere (1881 - 1900), who had reintroduced and emphasized realism in nineteenth-century sculpture.
Bouraine was captured in Germany during the First World War, and interned in Switzerland. In 1922, he exhibited at the Salon des Tuileries. The following year he began to exhibit at the Salon d'Autommne.
He executed small-scale sculptures for several French firms, including Susse Freer, La Verrier, and Arthur Goldscheider, often exhibiting with the latter's La Stele and L'Evolution groups. He worked under the psuedonym Derenne for LeVerrier Company.

In 1928 Gabriell Argy-Rousseau (1885- 1953) commissioned a number of figurines from Bouraine, mostly female nudes, but also a fountain and an illuminated group, all of which were executed in colored, translucent pate de verre.

He executed two major commissions for the 1937 Paris International Exhibition.
Written and submitted by Michael Marz from his own research including the Pullman Gallery in London and in conjunction with Brian Roughton of Heritage Auctions, Museum and Institutional Services Group.

Additional Notes: This work has undergone a very expensive wax-relining, and re-stretching job. Obviously done by a very skilled and talented restorer/conservator.
