Marius Jean Antonin Mercié
Nude Girl and Swan Bronze

1915

$47,000

About

This stylized figural study captures a young girl restraining a struggling swan trying to take flight. His technique is looser and more gestural than most of his earlier historical work. The work is quite heavy weighing in about 65 lbs and boasts an opulent dark patina. Unlike his signature work Gloria Victis, that has numerous versions, reproductions and casts, Girl and Swan may be of just a few casts or may be unique. In fact, another example of this work can not be found. Mercié, a native of Toulouse, where he was born in 1845, studied sculpture at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. His work is in the collections of Musée d'Orsay , Art Institute of Chicago, Lourve, National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Cleveland Museum of Art, Courtauld Institute of Art, Musée des Augustins , The Walters Art Museum,
