Antique Bronze Lady Sculpture Hippolyte Moreau - For Sale

Antique Bronze Lady Sculpture Hippolyte Moreau
Price: $3850.00
Beautiful antique bronze sculpture by Francois Hippolyte Moreau. Moreau was born in Dijon, France in 1832. He studied with the best experts in Paris. He exhibited at the Salon in 1863 and won a medal in 1877. He also won a medal at the Exposition Universal in 1900. He specialized in genre figures such as Springtime. Most of Moreau's sculptures are on the larger side, this one being no exception. She measures 21-1/2 inches tall and is 7 inches wide at her widest point. The base has a diameter of 6-1/4 inches. The bottom of the base has a special attachment allowing it to be set on a pivot and turned to view every angle. Bases like this were usually reserved for exhibition pieces. This item may have very well been exhibited at a Paris Salon at one time. This bronze sculpture captures a very life like image of the subject. The quality and detail are far superior to most French sculptures of this period. Even her teeth can be seen as separately sculptured and detailed. Most bronzes have the mouth closed. The model we are offering is a beautiful young lady with a flowing robe slightly dropping off her left shoulder exposing her breast. She leans back against a tree trunk as she greets the morning sun. Someone cleaned this bronze at one time and removed the patina. Other than the rubbing to the patina the bronze is in very good condition. If left alone it will tone down in time. It's a beautiful model that any collector would be pleased to add to their collection. (Item #72010)
