Catalogue Note

This charming marble of a mother and child shows superbly realistic expressions in the half smiles on both faces. Charles Théodore Perron, known for his genre sculptures, was a student of Alexandre Falguière in Paris and part of the Sociétaire des Artistes Français from 1896. Having received several awards and recognition for his work in marble, he is also known for some decorative chryselephantine Art Nouveau groups. The present group is distinguished by its sumptuous onyx base which is an attractive nod to the Art Nouveau.
