Lucienne Heuvelmans (1881-1944) Youth and Love Bronze group with red-tinted brown patina Signed "L.HEUVELMANS". Bears the founder's circular stamp "COLIN/ PARIS" on the back on the terrace. H. 39.5 cm and terrace : 28.6 x 12 ,8 cm, on a base : 3.5 x 30.5 x 14 ,3 cm This bronze represents the two figures embodying "Youth and Love" from Lucienne Heuvelmans' monumental group Les Illusions et le Regret, presented at the 1925 Exposition des Arts décoratifs. Lucienne Heuvelmans trained in drawing and sculpture in her family's cabinetmaking workshop, before entering the Académie Julian, where she studied with Denys Puech and later with Laurent Marqueste and Emmanuel Hannaux at the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts. In 1911, she became the first woman to win the Grand Prix de Rome for sculpture, and the first resident of the Villa Medici. On her return from the Eternal City, Lucienne Heuvelmans set up her studio in the Hôtel de Rohan-Guémené in Paris, became a drawing teacher and exhibited regularly at the Salon des Artistes français and the Salon des artistes décorateurs. Between the wars, she produced several models for the Manufacture de Sèvres, and her work turned towards antique and religious iconography.
