Théodore Rivière French Art Nouveau Bronze Sculpture

About

A French Art Nouveau patinated bronze sculpture by Théodore Rivière, featuring two intricately-sculpted figures from the story of Carthage. The woman has emerald eyes and her crown is accented with rubies, circa 1900. The subject of this figural sculpture is taken from Gustave Flaubert's novel, "Salammbô." The story takes place between 241 and 238 BC, during the war between Carthage and its mercenaries, who were in revolt. Mâthô, the Lybian rebel chief, fell in love with Salammbô, the daughter of the Carthaginian leader. This scene depicts the moment when the mortally wounded Mâthô dies at Salammbô's feet, declaring his love for her. The figure of Salammbô, the femme fatale,also inspired other Symbolist artists. Pictured in: Art Nouveau, 1890-1914, V&A exhibit by Paul Greenhalgh, page 122, and: 19th century sculpture by Maurice Rheims, p. 372 # 15, and: Dynamic beauty: Sculpture of Art Nouveau Paris, by Macklowe Gallery, The Studley Press, 2011, p. 229. Signed, "Susse Freres Paris."
