Catalogue Note

Jeune fille se coiffant exemplifies Lobo’s lifelong fascination with the feminine form. Born in the small Zamora village of Cerecinos de Campos in 1910, he fled his home country following the Spanish Civil War in 1939. Moving to Montparnasse, he soon formed close friendships with not only Pablo Picasso, but also fellow sculptors Jacques Lipchitz and Henri Laurens. Lobo became particularly close with Laurens, who offered him a job working in his studio and provided him with his own work space. Working alongside Laurens and his reclining nudes, Lobo further discovered his affinity for the female figure, an interest also inspired by the Iberian and Cycladic sculpture that he first encountered on a visit to the Archaeological Museum in Madrid. Lobo parted from Laurens in the 1950s and transitioned toward his signature, elegantly refined style inspired by the work of Constantin Brancusi and Jean Arp. The present work, with its soft curves, abstracted minimal form and extraordinary patina, exemplifies the most desirable qualities of twentieth-century sculpture.
