About this artwork
White porcelain figures covered with transparent glaze were the first examples of sculpture to emerge from Vincennes. Unusual for its large scale, this figure is a sculptural tour de force. The river god’s taut musculature, expressive limbs, and windblown hair are modeled with extraordinary vigor.
