US$17,500Asking Price

About

A fantastic quality late 19th century bronze sculpture of Cleopatra. Signed Henri Plé. The subject is based on the popular belief that when Cleopatra committed suicide by poisoning, it is that she was bitten by an asp. Henri Honoré Plé was born in 1853 and died in 1922. His first works were exhibited at the Salon in 1877. Most of his sculptures were of masculine figures, often heroes from history or from mythology. He received a bronze medal at the Paris 1900 Exposition Universelle.
