Head of a Man (1918)

Aime Jules Dalou (1838 - 1902)

This head of a man was said to have been modelled by Dalou as a training excercise for students in 1877. The original clay model is now in a private collection. A bronze cast of the of the bust was made in 1918, destined for the Jojiro Matsukata collection in Japan but ended up in the Polish Embassy in London, and from 1971 was transferred to the Warsaw Museum. This version was cast for Frank Brangwyn, artist and art advisor to Matsukata.
