About the work :

Au hasard Balthazar is a smoke-fired sandstone sculpture by the contemporary artist Cécile Raynal. The sculpture represents a young donkey hugged by the arm of a child. From the child's head some tree branches grow, that the artist created in bronze. The artwork makes reference to Robert Bresson's film "Au hasard Balthazar", 1966. 

This artwork is part of a narrative bestiary that has taken a growing place in the work of the artist in the recent years. "All sorts of animals and hybrid forms inhabit my work, chimeras, somewhere between animal and human figures." (Mémoires de Braise, by Cécile Raynal, Privat Publishing House, 2018).

Cécile Raynal queries the relationship between individuals, in particular the relationship between men and women, as well as the relationship between man and beast, striving to reveal realities unseen in the everyday life. Thanks to the animal figures in her pieces, the artist promotes to the viewers’ eyes the common language and the interactions between beasts and man.

This sculpture is a one-off piece, delivered with a certificate of authenticity.
