Emile Oscar Guillaume (1867-1942) - F. Barbedienne Fondeur - Sculpture, "La Délivrance" - Bronze - Early 20th century
France

A bronze sculpture of a female nude with a sword, titled "La Delivrance" (= The Liberation) signed by Emile Guillaume and marked "F. Barbedienne. Fondeur Paris”. On the sword is "Delivrance".

It is smaller version of "La Délivrance", a bronze statue from 1914 by the French sculptor Émile Oscar Guillaume. The statue was made as a celebration of the First Battle of the Marne, when the German army was stopped before it conquered Paris in August 1914.

The object is in good condition with signs of ageing. The pictures are a proper reflection of the object’s condition.

Due to the fragility of this object, we prefer that it is picked up in Tilburg (The Netherlands). If you wish, we can ship the object, well packaged, by registered mail.
