French Art Nouveau Marble Figure of a Nude Lady by Théodore Rivière



A rare French Art Nouveau carved marble figure of a nude lady by Theodore Riviere. Signed: Theodore Riviere, circa 1900, Art Nouveau Era. Width 22" (56 cm) Depth 12" (30 cm) Height 8.5" (21 cm) Théodore Rivière (1857-1912) studied at the École des Beaux Arts under Jouffroy and Falguière, going on to spend five years working in the studio of Mercié. For a time Rivière lived in Carthage, and it was from here that he sent his two Orientalist groups based on the story of Salambô to the Salon in 1894 and 1895, with great success. He was best-known for small scale works and orientalist subjects, but also produced monumental works such as his marble group Les Deux Douleurs exhibited at the Salon of 1903.
