Catalogue Note

Famous for his sumptuous nude bacchantes, Carrier-Belleuse was also a brilliant portraitist. Of his historical portraits, the Rousseau is one of the most engaging, depicting the philosopher in a moment of introspection, admiring a flower. The present sculpture appears to be an original plaster sketch by Carrier, which is supported by interior metal struts only seen in X-Rays.
