With their inimitable, poignant formal language, the figures of Henri Laurens resolve ostensibly contradictory moments. Especially his brilliant late work pays testimony to the perfection with which the artist bundles volume, matter, and movement within one sculptural expression. Despite the at times traditional models, his works are marked by a peculiar sense of freedom. The figures gracefully arch into the space and reveal their empathy for the human soul.
