Fletcher/Copenhaver Fine Art
Guy Ferrer (Contemporary)

This autumn Fletcher/Copenhaver Fine Art will be showing at the Antique & Design Center in High Point, North Carolina, and elsewhere, a superb collection of small bronzes by contemporary French artist Guy Ferrer.

Ferrer, who has an international reputation as painter, sculptor, and printmaker, is becoming extremely well-known for his monumental bronzes that grace public spaces in Europe, the United States, and elsewhere. Indeed, he has been justly called “a Rodin for the 21st Century.”

One of the edition of 8 of his celebrated monumental group T. O. L. E. R. A. N. C. E. was purchased by the Commune of Saint Ouen, just north of Paris, and installed in a public park especially constructed around it. Another was the first public sculpture purchased by Abu Dhabi. A third was purchased by the city of Montpellier and installed in the Port Marianne District, home to several of the most important architectural monuments of the 21st century, including Jean Nouvel’s Design Centre and Philippe Starck’s “Cloud.”

T. O. L. E. R. A. N. C. E., with its nine figures suggestive of the world’s various religions, has also been shown at La Monnaie and Le Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris, in Frankfurt, and Poznan, Poland. This past summer it was displayed in the cloister of the Cathedral of Perpignan.

The bronzes we will be exhibiting range from 8 to 26 inches tall, but monumental versions of most of them can be commissioned from the artist.
