Antique c. 1900 Art Nouveau French Bronzed Spelter Lucrece Woman Bust Statue

Up for offers is this antique c. 1900 Art Nouveau French bronzed spelter statue of a woman bust titled Lucrece.

This statue of Lucrece was created in c. 1900 after Emmanuel Villanis' work of Lucrece.

Lucrece is from the story described in Ovid's Fasti and Livy's History of Rime. In 509 BC, Sextus Tarquinius, son of Tarquin, the king of Rome, raped Lucretia (Lucrece), wife of Collantinus, one of the king's aristocratic retainers. As a result Lucrece committed suicide. Her body was paraded in the Roman Forum by the king's nephew. This incited a full scale revolt against the Tarquins led by Lucius Brutus, the banishment of the Royal Family and the founding of the Roman Republic.

The statue stands 13 3/4" high x 9" wide x 6" depth.

The bronzed spelter staue has a painted verdigris patina.

Condition is very, very good with no cracks, chips, breaks or repairs.

A nice addition to your collection.

Shipping will be $20.00 to anywhere in the USA.
