Coignard Madonna and Child

Roland Coignard, French sculptor, created this Madonna and Child. It was hand carved from oak, and then polychromed. His wife and son Benoit were the models. Tomie met Roland Coignard in 1959 in Paris. Roland Coignard did work for M. Cheret L'Atelier, the studio owned by Tomie's ex-father-in-law.
