This week's Artist: Marie-Madeleine Gautier

This week I'm featuring the artwork of French sculptor Marie-Madeleine Gautier whose deliciously curvy women have been delighting me for years.

What has always appealed to me about her sculpts is the similarity they bear to many so-called 'Venus' figures that archaeologists have unearthed. The female form has always inspired artists and even the most primitive figurines celebrate woman as the giver of life.

Visit her website here where there is a very comprehensive catalogue of her work.
