White marble carved relief of a woman’s face in Art Nouveau style, made by Pierre Charles Lenoir, circa 1900 – 1914.

Pierre Lenoir was a French sculptor and medallist and was one of the Breton sculptors born in the 1880s who studied at the École régionale des Beaux-Arts in Rennes. He was the son of the sculptor Charles Joseph Lenoir. He married the painter Mathilde Berthe Thorel who also used the name Mathilde Lenoir. Lenoir studied at the École des beaux-arts de Rennes and the École des beaux-arts de Paris. He became the director of the École des beaux-arts de Rennes and in 1931 he was made a Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur. He died on 9 September 1953 and is buried in the Thorel family grave in the Père-Lachaise cemetery.

The refined face with decorated headband and wavy hair is sculpted from a rough piece of white marble which gives a beautiful contrast. The bust is signed on the right side of the bust with “Lenoir”.
