French Modernist Bronze Sculpture of “Horse & Rider” Cast by Susse Freres



An interesting lost-wax casting of a horse and rider group in the modernist taste of the 1930s, the work is signed illegibly along the base “DE...L...m Maya“ (apparently) and is numbered in the wax prior to casting. Finished in a black surface patina, the wax is vigorously worked with a palette knife to create a sense of intense motion where dust billows around the galloping horse as the rider clings tightly against its back. Measurements: 5 7/8“ H x 4 1/8“ D x 7“ W.
