French artist Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) had a profound influence on 20th-century sculpture. His works are distinguished by their stunning strength and realism. Rodin refused to ignore the negative aspects of humanity, and his works confront distress and moral weakness as well as passion and beauty.

Rodin's most famous independent sculptures, such as The Thinker, The Kiss and The Three Shades, were derived from smaller reliefs contained within The Gates of Hell.

Beginning in the 1880's, Rodin exhibited many of these figures independently as freestanding sculptures. During the 1880s, while working on The Gates, Rodin was gaining notoriety. His work became more and more sought after, especially among fashionable society people.

Except for the Little Dancer Aged Fourteen, all Degas bronzes worldwide are cast from surmoulages (i.e., cast from bronze masters). A surmoulage bronze is a bit smaller, and shows less surface detail, than its original bronze mold. The Hébrard Foundry cast the bronzes from 1919–1936, and closed down in 1937, shortly before Hébrard's death. Degas's sculpture show took place in 1881 when he exhibited The Little Fourteen Year Old Dancer, only shown again in 1920. The model for this essentially realistic work is known to have been Marie Van Goethem.

Salvador Dali is considered as the greatest artist of the surrealist art movement and one of the greatest masters of art of the 20 century. Meeting Gala was the most important event in the artist's life and decisive for his future career. Gala was a Russian immigrant and ten years older than Dali. Dali and Gala burst into the effervescent Parisian Surrealist movement. In the summer of 1929 Gala and Dalí fell in love with each other and she took a firm decision: "We will never again be apart." Gala decided to stay with Dali. From that time on Gala became Dali's muse, model and business manager, for him she was everything. Gala was the inseparable companion of one of the 20th century's most famous artists, whom she followed in his stays in various parts of Europe and the United States. Most of all Gala was a stabilizing factor in his life. And she managed his success in the 1930s with exhibitions in Europe and the United States.  In 1934 Dali and Gala were married in a civil ceremony in Paris and in 1958 in church. In 1948 Dali and Gala returned to Europe, spending most of their time either in their residence in Lligat/Spain or in Paris/France or in New York. Dali developed a lively interest in science, religion and history.

 Dali integrated things into his art that he had picked up from popular science. Another source of inspiration were the great classical masters of painting like Raphael, Velasquez or the French painter Ingres. The artist commented his shift in style with the words: "To be a surrealist forever is like spending your life painting nothing but eyes and noses."  In 1958 the artist began his series of large sized history paintings. He painted one monumental painting every year during the summer months in Lligat. The most famous one, The Discovery of America by Christopher Columbus, can be seen at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg in Florida. It is breath-taking. The artist's late art works combine more than ever his perfect and meticulous painting technique with his fantastic and limitless imaginations. From around 1965 on, the couple was seen less frequently together. But Gala continued to manage Dali's business affairs. Salvador Dali is the only known artist who had two museums dedicated exclusively to his works at lifetime. The Museum was the former Municipal Theater of Figueres. In 1918, when Salvador Dali was only fourteen years old, it had shown his first public exhibition. Since 1970 the artist had dedicated his energy to transform the former Municipal Theater into a museum and art gallery.

From 1971 to 1980 Gala made stays in Púbol Castle, where she was buried. The castle, known now as Gala Dalí Castle Museum-House, has been open to the public since 1996. In 1974 the Theatro Museo Dali was officially opened. Dali died on January 23, 1989 from heart failure.

Facsimile

What is Facsimile?

A Facsimile is a reproduction of a unique item. Facsimile differs from the original item, even though the attempts are made to replicate the source as accurately as possible in terms of scale, color, condition, and other material qualities it is not identical to the original item.

Bronze Facsimile A facsimile in bronze of Seneca and Nero

Why Facsimiles are produced?

Facsimiles are produced after the artists death to generate income and cash flowfor Museums/Trusts promoting the artist. Most Facsimiles are sold commercially and occasionally may be produced in limited editions, sometimes accompanied by a commentary, typically 2,000 copies but for some artists like Dali would be a much higher number, a Bronze Facsimile would cost the equivalent of a quite few thousands of dollars.

Facsimiles are used for educational purposes by scholars, researches, museums, archives and also for media preservation and conservation.  

When Facsimiles are produced?

After the artist has passed away, the Signature is done in plate (Signature in Plate )

Cost of Facsimiles

Paper facsimiles are reasonably inexpensive.  However making a facsimile in Bronze is a highly expensive process that involve a specialized fine art bronze foundry, casting bronze, Ceramic Forms and Rubber etc. Bronze facsimiles are priced at a fraction of a limited edition price and the cost of the original.

A Facsimile ought to be enjoyed just for what it is, a beautiful object giving as much joy as the original for a fraction of the price.

bronze sculpture

Making bronzes: The original sculpture is made in clay or plaster an is not for sale. From a “clay form” a wax is taken, the negative of the clay. To produce a bronze the foundry makes a special ceramic forms. The hot wax is purred into the ceramic forms and sand is deposited inside the wax, then hot bronze is purred into the ceramic form. As the wax melts, hot bronze replaces the wax that is why a the method is called a “wax lost method”.

The 'patina' colorization of a sculpture: The patina “colorization” is made in the foundry by applying chemicals.

Bronze Casting

Fusion Cast has revolutionized working in bronze by developing a Patented "cold casting" process. Bronze is combined with high density urethane (HDU) at the molecular level to create durable signs and plaques that are indistinguishable from their traditional metal counterparts in look and feel. But the Fusion Cast sign or plaque comes with several advantages:

  • It uses less metal resulting in cost savings. See Economical

  • It's much lighter making it easier to transport and install. See Versatile

  • Design options are limitless and are not "shoehorned" into pre-existing moulds. See Artwork Preparation

  • The process is environmentally friendly with no toxic waste. See Eco-friendly

Fusion Cast has become a viable alternative to traditional bronze plaques and can be used in any setting. The result is a tough sign that won't crack, warp, stain or chip in the most extreme weather conditions. Each sign comes with written warranties on craftsmanship and substrate making them ideal for a variety of applications:

  • Heritage and Historical plaques

  • Church panels

  • Awards

  • Hall of Fame walls

  • Donor trees

  • Recognition plaques

  • Dedications

  • Address signs

  • Memorials

  • Low relief

Bronze was discovered in the Bronze Age (thousands of years ago). In the art world, bronze is known as a metal alloy used in statues. It implies prestige, and timelessness that is not found in other metals. The process of making bronze combines copper and tin is undertaken in a foundry where the two alloys are combined under great heat. Molten bronze can then be poured into a mould and shaped to any design. Once the mould is broken and the bronze allowed cooling, a perfect facsimile of the object is left behind. Additional polishing or burnishing to remove any imperfections is undertaken and the piece is then ready for display. The demand for bronze has made it a rather expensive material especially given its weight. Anyone who has ever picked up even a small statue made from bronze has marveled at how heavy it is. As such, shipping, handling and installation of bronze statues and plaques must be undertaken with great care often accompanied by great expense.
