About Artist:

This is about my grandafather's art, George Albert Froidevaux.

My grandfather was a watchmaker and a self made artist. He would prolifically paint and make sculpturess out of wood and out of watch mechanism. He loved nature very much especially mountains and glaciers. He really worshiped the Matterhorn.

He had a very fulfilling life although he never really got the chance to see his art appreciated as it should have been in my opinion. He really did not care about fame or money, he just needed to create and to experience. A bit art brut, a bit jack of all trades. He was a simple but a good man. He passed away in September 2015.

    This hand crafted sculpture was made by my grandfather George Albert Froidevaux. He was a clockmaker and out of watch mechanism, he created sculptures.

    This one is named "The man giving the abstract time". It is numbered 136. The whole body is made out of watch pieces except for the arms. The texture is unpolished which gives the sculpture some bronze relfects. The man is holding a clock that is working when it is winded but does not give the time.
