Technique: Bronze
Dimensions: 55 x 45 x 10 cm
Date: 1915 - 1920
Generic classification: Sculpture
General inventari: 120 E
Location: Reial Acadèmia Catalana de Belles Arts de Sant Jordi
Inscriptions: “OTERO”, at the lower right side; “FUNDICION – BECHINI”, in the frame of the bronze relief, at the lower left side. Provenance: This bronze was probably among the works the Academy collected from the artist’s workshop after his death. Jaume Otero was pupil and collaborator of Manuel Fuxà. In 1906 he won an educational grant and left for Paris and Brussels, where he returned a second time thanks to a financial aid from Barcelona’s City Council. In Paris he collaborated with Albert Bartholomé. The works of Otero, above all those prior to approximately 1925 are a symbiosis of the classical Noucentisme (a Catalan cultural movement at the beginning of the twentieth century) and the decorative Art Deco. This present work is a good example.
