Ossip Zadkine, terracotta, 1932

This Russian early-cubist sculptor lived in Paris from 1909. His love for tree stubs made him a classic-modern wood sculptor. With a cubist yet solid expression, he carved elementary shapes. He also worked with clay.

‘Jeune fille avec oiseau’ is a work that breaks through the solid form to highlight different aspects simultaneously. Zadkine creates a concave form and once again manipulates the new surface. From one point of view, he simultaneously shows how his semi-figure retains its solid core.
