The origin of this work dates back to 1893 when bumblebee entered the august rodin workshop as a practitioner and took part in the contest for the monument to the death of the 1870 war in Montauban, his hometown. While facing a harsh opposition after presenting his model, he finally obtained the project thanks to the support of rodin. Completed in 1902, the sculpture will be presented at the salon before being inaugurated on September 14 in Montauban.In 1970, his "war" was transferred to bumblebee. We also notice the beautiful critique of thilda harlor published in the feminist newspaper the sling that notes, before censoring the perseus of camille claudel: "We will salute there the admirable monument of bumblebee: homage to the dead, the fighters and the servants of tarn-et-garonne (war of 1870-71).

Criticism or not - for or against. Finally, he underlines the silence of his comrades: "The good comrades have not told me a word - they flee me it is very good. So I'm not nice it's true to give them such a set: architecture and sculpture that are one. Raphaël Gasperi is a painter who was also curator of the Brive Museum (labenche museum) from 1912 to 1935.
A true enthusiast, he devoted his whole life to a cult of beauty and long sought to spread his ideas. Faithful republican, he was convinced that the common admiration of the beautiful could appease social hatreds.
