Commentaire



Bénédicte Bonnet Saint-Georges, "Some 19th century Sculptures Acquired by the Metropolitan Museum", La Tribune de l'Art, August 29, 2013:
" (...) Another portrait of a less well-known model, but technically interesting, is that of Fanny Prunaire in glass paste by Henry Cros after 1880 and purchased by the museum from David and Constance Yates. Fanny Prunaire, the wife of the engraver Alfred Prunaire, also produced wood engravings. As for Cros, he was a sculptor, ceramist, painter and worked with both glass paste and wax. The Petit Palais, which holds a beautiful ensemble of his works, presented these in all their diversity in 2009. This medallion joins two other glass paste reliefs by the artist already residing at the Metropolitan."
