Outdoor Sculptures

When we think of outdoor sculpture, we might first think of a life-size bust of Napoleon, a carving of Balzac or depictions of other famous figures. This is probably because outdoor sculpture is originated as a form of ornamentation for monuments or memorials, and is created by artists as an independent work with a specific purpose. 

This tradition is evident in antiquity and continues later with Michelangelo's imposing sculptures and Auguste Rodin's the monumental statues, most notably his masterpiece 'The Thinker', which the artist created in the late 19th century. The work depicts a man meditating whilst seemingly facing a profound dilemma. It was first positioned in front of the Panthéon before being moved to the Hotel Biron in 1922, to be included in the permanent collections of the recently inaugurated Rodin Museum. 

More recently, artist and sculptor Jeff Koons has produced a large number of outdoor contemporary sculptures, following in the footsteps of Louise Bourgeois and contemporary sculptor Jaume Plensa, whose artworks are commissioned internationally. These works are exhibited in public spaces and have quickly become tourist attractions in their own right.

Although outdoor art was once site-specific and reserved for public spaces, today the gardens are also considered as an additional part of the house, meaning garden decorations are no longer limited to plants and flowers but also include garden sculpture.Exterior decoration is increasingly inspired by interior design and can also be enriched with works of art. Whether large or small, contemporary and modern sculptures play a decorative role; ultimately adding a personal touch and a contemporary edge to garden décor and outdoor lawns. 

Nicolas Dubreuille has devoted himself to sculpture since the early 2000s. His work is playful and eccentric. His lacquered resin forms recall great modern masters such as Arp, Brancusi and Calder.Geometric, totemic, intertwined: his sculptures are reminiscent of characters, animals, habitats and architecture. Dubreuille's sculptures are recognisable for their brightly coloured monochromatic compositions. 

Anne Kutzach, on the other hand, has a more kinetic approach to sculpture, with some of her pieces being designed to move with the wind. Their airiness allows the sculpture to integrate with the environment, surrendering itself to the force of nature. The artwork is also subject to the whims of the viewer who can who can interact with it physically. This opens up a unique communication between the viewer and the work of art. 

Classic, understated, whimsical, sculpted in bronze, stone or steel - sculpture comes in a variety of styles, shapes and sizes. Artsper not only helps you find inspiration for exterior decoration but also offers a wide selection of small or large sculptures suitable for your garden and outdoor spaces.
