The sculptor’s first masterpiece, made for the city of his birth, the Montauban monument celebrates those who fought in the War of 1870 and the conflict that came after.

An assembly of expressive fragments, the enormous work marks the turning point of Bourdelle’s career, as he began developing a personal artistic language which would lead to the creation of Héraklès archer. The works Grand Guerrier, L’Effroi, and Têtes hurlantes will be reinstalled for the exhibition. These famous fragments reveal the sculptor’s audacity. The exhibition will present photographs taken by Bourdelle himself: documentary photographs or aesthetic photographs similar to those of the pictorialists, they outline the seven years he spent creating the work. The exhibition was designed in partnership with the Ingres Museum of Montauban where it will be presented from June to October 2016.#Bourdelle ACADEMIC ADVISORS: Chloë Théault, Curator, in charge of the collections and photographic archives of the Bourdlle Museum; Colin Lemoine, Curatorial Attaché, in charge of the sculpture funds for the Bourdelle Museum.GENERAL CURATORS: Florence Viguier-Dutheil, Head Curator, Director of the Ingres Museum of Montauban; Amélie Simier, Head Curator, Director of the Bourdelle and Zadkine museums.
