Rarely seen piece by Helene Sardeau also known as Mrs.George Biddle. I have found only one other example offered and it was titled “cabaret performer”, not sure if that was the given title or something the seller came up with. In any case this is an emotionally powerful littlesculpture. Sardeau was known for her depictions of contemplation, serenity and humanism that were often conveyed in her work. The sense of raw emotion can be seen in this piece which is reminiscent of the emotion captured in her famous sculpture "Slave" which resides at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Sculpture is signed Sardeau on back of base. Measures 7in height. Condition: broken and reglued, repair holds tight but the cracks and glue residue are visible.
