The Main Themes of Sculptures

Nude Sculptures

The genre of nude sculptures is significant in the artistic world. From antiquity to today, sculptors have studied the representation of the human body. Whether to study human anatomy, reveal the beauty or particularity of a body, glorify the female body or reveal masculine musculature, or to delve into the study of movement, artists often produce nude statues.

Animal Sculptures

Animal sculptures are also frequently replicated in sculpture. The main subject is an animal, domestic or wild. For a long time, animal sculpture was not given its due recognition. It was only with modern art in the 19th century and then with contemporary art that animal sculpture gained importance and value. Antoine-Louis Barye is a major modern representative of this theme. Today, they tend towards anthropomorphism, meaning that animals often adopt human postures and expressions.

Pop Icon Sculptures

The sculptures of pop icons are not only depicted in painting but also in sculpture. Since the Pop art movement of the 60s, the pop spirit has permeated all areas of art and is not waning. Therefore, pop icon sculpture widely draws from pop culture: it incorporates its codes and represents famous people recognizable by the majority. This includes Star Wars icons, Disney characters, other known cartoon characters, contemporary stars, American superheroes, etc.

Other Themes of Sculptures

 In history, sculptures were frequently used in mythology. Today, the theme of mythology or even religion does not inspire artists as much. In continuation, they have instead turned to the theme of fantasy, which has become a unique genre. Fantasy incorporates elements of the fantasy genre and reproduces things that do not really exist: monsters, fantastical landscapes, not entirely human beings, etc.

Sculptures of Illustrious Characters

Sculptors have long reproduced illustrious characters, much like we do today with our popular icons. Standing or on their mounts, these characters were often kings, emperors, lords, or significant figures of a time.

At Carré d'artistes, discover different themes of contemporary sculptures by contemporary sculptor artists from around the world such, Sébastien Chartier, Julien Rey, Floh, and many others.
