Escultura, Escritor (1) - Bronce - Segunda mitad del siglo XIX

Votive statue of a writer represented as a seated scholar, the crown of laurels symbolising his glory, the hand raised for reflection, the pen in the other hand.
Period: late 19th century

This statuette is representative of the statue mania during the late 19th century. Under Napoleon III, a cult of great men was celebrated, as was the case with the great artists on the Garnier Opera House in Paris and the great men on the Louvre Museum. This statuette is part of the workshop reductions for the distribution of these models. The approach is quite comparable to that of Rodin when he created his Balzac.

Important bronze with brown patina, 40 cm.
Quality period cast.
Very nice drapery work.

Protected shipping. Very heavy item.

Identical piece: Sale L'huillier et Associés, Paris.
