Irénée Duriez gained fame as a sculptor of mainly female figures and as a creator of an originally robust, but gradually more pure and slim elegance. Bronze is his material, the figure his language. This way, he follows in the footsteps of artists like Rodin, Maillol en Grard. He considers living models as a stimulant and a source of creativity which intrigues, touches, and seduces him with its different postures, points of view, sensitivities, and emotions. His work is an ode to the young woman.
