Bronze with beautiful brown patina from artist Jean Mich.

Jean Pierre Mich (1871–1932) is a Luxembourger sculptor and designer, close to Jugendstil movement.
Native to Bitburg-Prüm (his family origins), Jean Mich comes to Paris and, as Fine Arts student, he enters into sculptor Gabriel-Jules Thomas workshop. Mich continues his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.
Member of the 'Cercle artistique de Luxembourg' (Luxembourg artistic circle), in 1902 he was awarded with the first 'Prix Grand-Duc Adolphe' (Grand-Duke Adolphe Prize).
In 1903, and then, in 1910, he travels several times to China. There, he receives the request to make an imposing funerary monument for the dignitary and viceroy Zhang Zhidong, among others. He lives in the Hubei province where he meets an old friend, the Luxembourger pioneer engineer Eugène Ruppert (1864–1950) who supervises different major construction works. But the Chinese Revolution that breaks out in October 1911 puts an end to construction works and the two men return to Europe. Several busts signed Mich were made in Paris at Susse's workshop in 1912.
Between 1910 and 1913, Mich works on the facade of the 'Banque et Caisse d'Épargne de l'État' and he makes a certain number of ornamental sculptures, including the two pilasters placed at the entrance.
The First World War jeopardises a large number of other projects, then, in 1920, he entered second into a national competition project, won by Claus Cito, for the Remembrance Monument, the Gëlle Fra. Disappointed, Mich moves to Paris and he seems to have earned his living there as a worker-sculptor for various construction companies.
He died in Arcueil, in 1932.
Forgotten, his works were only rediscovered about twenty years after.
The 'Musée National d'Histoire et d'Art' in Luxembourg is preparing an exhibition that will take place from the 26/10/18 to the 27/01/19.

    J’ai mis tout en œuvre pour que votre colis vous arrive en parfait état et le plus rapidement possible.
    Catawiki m’a informé de votre règlement le 19 mai qui est un samedi. Le samedi les expéditions ne sont possible que jusqu’à 12h. Je vous ai alors adressé un mail afin de vous prévenir que j’étais en déplacement en Belgique jusqu’au mercredi suivant. Et le lundi était un jour férié. Votre colis est donc bien parti dans les trois jours ouvrés, comme cela est stipulé dans les conditions de Catawiki.
    J’ai préparé le bordereau d’expédition et lorsque j’ai vu que le transporteur ne viendrait enlever votre colis chez moi que le lundi 28 mai, je me suis rendue moi-même au dépôt le jeudi soir après mon travail pour vous faire gagner 2 jours. Le dépôt se trouve à 50km de chez moi (100 km aller retour). Je suis peinée de votre évaluation négative. Cependant, j’espère que vous satisfait de votre objet et je vous souhaite une bonne journée. Karine

    I made every effort so that your parcel arrives at you in perfect condition and as fast as possible.
    Catawiki informed me about your regulation(payment) on May 19th which is Saturday. On Saturdays the expeditions(shippings) are possible only till 12 hours. I then sent you an e-mail to warn(prevent) you that I was away from the office in Belgium until next Wednesday. And Monday was a holiday. Your parcel thus left well in three working days, like that is stipulated in the conditions of Catawiki.
    I prepared the dispatch note and when I saw that the carrier would come to remove your parcel at my home only on Monday, May 28th, I went myself to the deposit on Thursdays evenings after my work to make win you 2 days. The deposit is in 50km from my home (return 100 km). I am saddened by your negative evaluation. However, I hope that satisfies you of your object and I wish you a good day. Karine

    ik had al het mogelijke doen om uw pakketje arriveert bij u in perfecte staat en zo snel mogelijk.
    Catawiki vertelde me over uw verordening(betaling) op 19 mei is zaterdag. Op zaterdag de expedities(hanze) zijn alleen mogelijk tot 12:00. Vervolgens heb ik u een e-mail te waarschuwen(voorkomen) dat ik weg was van het kantoor in België tot aanstaande woensdag. En maandag een vakantie was. Uw pakketje dus links goed in drie werkdagen, zoals dat is vastgelegd in de voorwaarden van Catawiki.
    Ik bereidde het verzendingsborderel en toen ik zag dat de vervoerder 1.424 bouw uw pakketje bij mij thuis(met mij) alleen op maandag, mei 28th, ik ging(overgeleverd) mij tot de aanbetaling (magazijn) op donderdag 's avonds na mijn werk om je win 2 dagen. De aanbetaling (magazijn) is op 50 km van mijn huis ( retour 100 km). Ik ben bedroefd door je negatieve evaluatie. Ik hoop echter dat u tevreden bent met uw object en ik wens u een goede dag. Karine

    Heel goed afgehandeld.
    Alleen de adressering liet iets te wensen over. Het is dat de lokale bezorger het adres wist te plaatsen, anders was het wellicht een probleem.
