Born in Paris in 1885, Henri Laurens first worked as a stonemason and only later started taking drawing classes while developing a strong interest in the work of Auguste Rodin. From 1914 to 1915, the artist began experimenting with still life and various media including wood, iron and eventually terracotta and bronze. Among other exhibitions, Laurens participated to The Venice Biennales of 1948 and 1950, and had a retrospective at the Musée National d'Art Moderne in Paris in 1951, three years before his death.
His work is included in the collections The Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Tate Gallery in London, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
