“1900”, Galeries nationales du Grand Palais, Paris, 14 March – 26 June 2000, ill. p. 287, n. 311 in the catalog

Provenance
On the occasion of the second quinquennial exhibition of the “Salon des boursiers du voyage” at the Grand Palais in Paris in 1907, Laporte-Blairsy, award holder in 1896, exhibited, out of competition, about twenty sculptures, electric lamps, a plaster and a paper knife, as well as several drawings and paintings, as some sort of retrospective of his work. It was acknowledged that he used many foundries and editors; Susse, Hébrard, Goldscheider, Colin, Houdebine, Blot and the Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres. Those compositions cast by Adrien Hébrard were without any figures and very different to the particular style he was known for. Five sculptures were exhibited: “Les Algues”, “Les Coquillages”, “Le Poulpe”, “Hippocampes” and “Crocus”.

Our sculpture is not numbered and does not bear the customary lost wax seal of the artist. It is inscribed in full Cire perdue A. A. Hébrard (“Lost wax A. A. Hébrard”). It is one of the first pieces cast by the foundry.
