55. Mirror, circa 1960/1965
Circular mirror (‘Witch’s mirror’) with convex glass and a three-layer frame made with Vautrin’s
famous “talosel” material (cellulose acetate). The first layer in black honeycomb, the second inlaid
with grey and gilded batons of pearlized glass and the third simulating driftwood. Hot-etched
signature "Line Vautrin" on the back and ROI stamp.

These "Selected Works" by the auction house also include a splendid bronze sculpture by Henri Laurens, Le Ruban, acquired from the Galerie Louise Leiris and coming from a collection in the Luberon. When we turn around this work created in 1937, we understand the metaphorical content of the sculpture: The Ribbon represents the activity of the creative force of nature, which serves as a model for man. Hesitant, still growing, germinating shapes start to move. The work is estimated at 25,000 / 30,000 €.
