Late 19th Century Alabaster Statue, Bather by Guglielmo Pugi

US$4,477.28Asking Price


Alabaster statue featuring a nude bather removing the drape around her hips while advancing toward the river. Her light contraposto pose accentuates her feminine curves.

It is very close to the Nymph going down to the bath by Etienne-Maurice Falconet (French, 1716-1791), a well-known model that inspired artists throughout the 19th century. Signed on the base, Pugi. circa 1900 Dimensions: W 6.3in, D 7.5in, H 22in. Dimensions: L 16 cm, P 19cm, H 56cm.
