63 Jean-Pierre Larocque (1953; Canada) Untitled (Horse) 2005 Stoneware; ht. 27, wd. 31.5, dp. 9 in. Larocque is proud of the fact that “horse people” do not like his work. Some are disturbed by the artist’s disregard for equine fidelity in his art, but here, he chides them to remember that the work is first about being a sculpture, hence the struts and supports left in the finished work. The piece is distinguished by a remarkable textured surface, subtle tonal gradations from burnt sienna to black, and the workhorse’s solid, unyielding presence. Larocque is a significant artist leading the way in Canadian art. $7,000 - $10,000
