About

French late 19th century spelter sculpture by Hippolyte Moreau fitted with original 1 3/4" thick rouge griotte marble base. Hippolyte was one of the famous Moreau brothers, all of whom were sculptors. He was born in Dijon France in 1832 and died in 1927. This statue, in a warm chocolate brown patina depicts a diaphanously dressed woman with flowing scarf overhead and winged cherob at her side resting on the crest of a wave and shell. Hippolyte Moreau exhibited in the Salon des Artistes Français at the turn of the century and won a medal at the Universal Exposition in 1878 and another at the 1900 World Expo. Most of his works are preserved in the Museum of Fine Arts in Dijon. The light beige pedestal shown in the last photo is not offered with the piece, but can be purchased separately.
