Plaster

1926

49x22x25

Infantile portrait of D. José Luis Puente Domínguez, of enormous smoothness in the work. In this period the busts, especially the infantile ones, show a clear inspiration in the Italian Renaissance. The plaster turns a surface similar to the marble, almost with slippery texture, creating an effect of enormous realism and infantile naiveté, characteristics of the face, which seems to arise from the base with undulating forms, in it appears the date and Asorey's signature.
