Antoine Bourdelle, the equal of Ruhlmann, Dupas and other leading artisans and artists of the 1920s in Paris, helped to popularize the depiction of heroic Greek-style nude figures demonstrating their strength and fitness in the pursuit of manly arts such as hunting, fighting or athletics. Henri Bargas, like Bourdelle, exhibited at the famous 1925 Exhibition in Paris that helped to usher in the style we now call "Art Deco," and created a number of sculptures in the Bourdellian tradition. This piece, in terra cotta, is finished with a handsome, thin white patina that gives it a strong antique appearance.
