The Black Panther on the Move by Maurice Prost (1854-1967)

The iconic black panther on the march was presented to the public for the first time in 1927 at the Exhibition of Mutilated and War Wounded Artists, Galerie Magellan, organized by the Samothrace Association, then in 1930 at the Salon des Artistes Français. In 1931, Maurice Prost exhibits an enlarged copy at the Colonial Exhibition.

This flagship work is considered the animal sculpture par excellence in the Art Deco period. Its plastic cleverly combines elegance and power. Very structured and graphic, this sculpture, enhanced by its "fine black Belgian" marble base, a pure black stone without veining, remains timeless.

And proof of its success, this famous model will be produced by the Susse foundry in around 500 copies for the four sizes combined. To avoid the many fakes that have appeared to this day, this bronze is accompanied by a unique certificate of authenticity issued by the expert mandated by the beneficiaries of the sculptor's family, which we give to our purchaser.
