Sarah Bernhardt French Art Nouveau Portrait in Bronze

About

A French Art Nouveau patinated bronze sculpture by Sarah Bernhardt. This sculpture known to be a self-portrait with a chimera personification. The chimera was, according to Greek mythology, a monstrous fire-breathing hybrid creature of Lycia in Asia minor, composed of the parts of more than one animal. The term chimera has come to describe any mythical or fictional animal with parts taken from various animals, or to describe anything composed of very disparate parts, or perceived as wildly imaginative, implausible, or dazzling, circa 1880. An example of this sculpture is pictured in: Dynamic Beauty: Sculpture of Art Nouveau Paris, by Macklowe Gallery, The Studley Press, 2011, p. 55. Signed, ''Sarah Bernhardt 1880''.
