ANJOU

Danielle Anjou (?). American sculptor.
My hesitations about Anjou, already expressed, are evident in this work. To say the truth this work is beautiful and well executed, but the archer's face reveals the artist's shortcomings. The body is perfect according to the classic canon that we know, but the face is reduced to be an inexpressive and immutable mask. What does it mean? It is a mistake that Anjou should not have done.
