There’s one more prominent sculpture in Cagnes sur Mer that I’ve yet to cover. This one’s at the entrance to the hippodrome (race course). It’s a 3.25 metre (10 1/2 feet) bronze of a horse (2007) in full flight called « Il n’y a plus d’obstacle » (There’s no more obstacle) which was produced by Sacha Sosno (1937-2013), an internationally renowned French sculptor and painter.
In his last decades Sosno achieved international recognition for his monumental outdoor sculptures on the Côte d’Azur. Along with: Yves Klein, Arman and Cesar he was part of the New Realist (Nouveau réalisme) movement. Sosno had a singular artistic approach: the concept of obliteration. His sculptures are masked by spaces, inviting the viewer to use their own imagination.
