Henri Gaudier-Brzeska 1891–1915
T00842 Duck 1914
Bronze, 2½ x 4¾ x 1¿ (6.5 x 12 x 4).
Presented by the Kettle’s Yard Collection, Cambridge 1966.
No. 4 in an edition of twelve casts made by H. S. Ede from the original marble in the Kettle’s Yard Collection. No specific reference to a duck sculpture appears in Gaudier’s or Ede’s lists. Being small in dimensions and flat on one side, it has sometimes been confused with the ‘Paperweight’ (alabaster, 1914), but Ede believes these to be two distinct works.
