De fait cette tête de Méduse date de 1899, et provient d’un projet de groupe monumental intitulé Persée et Méduse dont vous trouverez une reproduction d’atelier ci-jointe. Le groupe a été
détruit dans un accident du camion qui le transportait au retour d’une exposition. Seule la tête a
été reproduite, mais j’ignore le nombre de tirage fait par la fonderie Luppens. (Courrier reçu le
26 octobre 2019 de Monsieur Alain Gondoin, arrière petit-fils de l’artiste)
