L'ESCLAVE

Obsessed with faithful representations of human movement, Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux (1827-1875), sculpted this in series of busts, Pourquoi naître esclave (Why born a slave,) around 1870. This particular bust depicts a slave, Négresse Captive, distinctly at an angle in order to express revolt. The story goes that the woman who posed for the bust might have also been the model of the “Capresse des colonies” by Charles Cordier in 1861.
