Life-Sized Naive French Cast Stone Dog "Tin-Tin"
This large dog is a showstopper! Hand-crafted of sculpted concrete over an iron armature, his stylized form and naive execution are a superb example of French folk art and he looks like Tin-Tin. Almost cartoon-like, we particularly love his faded black eyes, uneven pricked ears and panting pose. Craggy, weathered surface with traces of original white paint on his backside. Nearly invisible restoration to base and jawline.
France, CA 1930.
