20 th & 21 st Century Sculpture PIASA confirm excellent results in the field of Sculpture | JUNE 3, 2015

PIASA continued to develop their Sculpture Department with a highly
successful second specialist sale on june 3, 2015, devoted to 20th & 2st century Sculpture.
The sale placed the spotlight on monumental sculpture. A selection of works exhibited in
PIASA’s courtyard, including the César bronze Le Sein (lot 83), which was propelled by
keen bidding in the room and on the telephone to all of €212,600.
Echoing these monumental pieces were fifty or so works displayed inside the PIASA
showrooms. The sale’s top price of €258,480 went to L’Implorante by Camille Claudel (lot
6), wherein she portrays herself in an idealized vision of youth. The figure comes from the
three-figure group L’Age Mûr, symbolizing separation. ‘Isolated and smaller, l’Implorante
abandons narrative to become a symbol shorn of all artifice’ commented Head of Sculpture
Maylis Gazave.
More recent works by Joseph Csaky enjoyed great success, including his Tête à la Mèche
(lot 18) at €25,520. Also of note in this section were works by Jean Chauvin. His Great
Sphynx (lot 32), a unique piece in bronze-coloured mahogany shown at the 1954 Venice
Biennale, fetched €63,800 to set a new record for the artist.
Another highlight was Jean Arp’s bronze Pile ou Face (lot 52) at €35,728 (est. €10,000-15,000)
and, among the monumental works, Philippe Hiquily’s steel Marathonienne at €78,680.
