1878

$147,000

About

Signed and titled at the base, Sloan's Auctioneers, 1998 The work shows a peak moment of drama and is meticulously carved in the neo-classical style. Lion garment in the back with lion face suggests that this is a reference to classical mythology. The Sculptor carefully executed complex figural composition with masterful craftsmanship. Between 1870 and 1891, Webber exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy. It's quite heavy and looks much better in person. An image of a lion is carved on the back. A steel engraving of Webber's statue was reproduced in the December 1880 issue of the 'Art Journal'.
