The detailed sculpture sits on a circular base and signed E. Picault, with front labeled plaque. Overall, the bronze sculpture is in excellent condition with wonderful details and a rich patinated finish. Place this piece on a bookshelf, or in a man's office. Emile Louis Picault (1833-1915) was a French sculptor, best known for works depicting allegorical and patriotic subjects, and mythological heroes. Picault was a very prolific artist, producing many sculptures during his long sculpting career. He began to show his artwork at the Salon beginning in 1863. He signed the majority of his work as "E. Picault". Measure: 7.5" W x 6" D x 19.25" H.
