1:1 Sculptures

The 1:1 sculptures are exact replicas of parts of the landscape. Cole moulds a part with a rectangular surface in places that are meaningful to him but, as with the other works, take on a universal character once they are shown to the public. The first ” recordings ” of the landscape were 2 parts of the Mont saint Victoire in Aix en Provence. He exhibited them in the Chateau de Chimay. These works were still executed in wax, since then he has only made this type of work in bronze. Other places that were reproduced were parts of the French coast in Cancale and a piece of a dry waterfall in Sautadet.
