French Antique Bronze Sculpture "Eagle" after Antoine-Louis Barye, Barbedienne

US$1,875

About

A powerful display of Barye's left-facing edition of "Eagle", it is a reduction developed first from Barye's studies for the French government in 1834. They were initially planning to surmount the Arc de Triomphe with an eagle with a wingspan of 75 feet, grasping in its talons the trophies of war. The project was abandoned out of concern it would offend France's past enemies, but Barye utilized the studies for several models of Eagles with raised wings. Barye utilized the studies to complete is "Aigle Tenant un Heron" and the eagle was also reduced and modeled alone over several base variations by Barbedienne. The present model is beautifully finished in a complex green, black and brown surface patina that is positively silky to the touch with a brilliant glow throughout. It is situated over a square black marble base. Measurements: 5 7/8" total height x 7 1/8" W x 3 1/4" D (base).
