I have been fortunate enough to have bought a substantial collection of 19th century bronzes from the estate of John Whiteford of New York. I will be selling them all on over the next 10 days or so. Please check my other listings for more of these bronzes. I will gladly combine shipping wherever possible.
This listing is for a very fine circa 1890’s French Art Nouveau bronze bust of a young beauty with a hat. The piece measures 14 inches or 35.5 cm high, and is 7 inches or 18 cm at its widest.
The bronze features a ¾ bust of a beautiful young woman wearing a large brimmed hat. She wears her hair loose and flowing under her hat. She has excellent rendering in her smiling face and hair, also the details in her clothes is quite fine. The bronze has a milk chocolate brown patina or color, which is all original to the piece. It is signed on the back “G. VAN DER STRAETEN”, this for Georges Van Der Straeten (1856-1928) who was Belgian in descent but lived and worked in Paris for much of his life. He began exhibiting at the Salon in 1885 and produced many portraits and some fanciful busts. There is also a foundry mark on the back for the Societe des Bronzes of Paris. Please reference Bronzes of the 19th Century by Peter Kjellberg pages 622 and 665.
The bronze is in excellent condition, there are minor age appropriate variations to the patina. Please see the many photographs for more on the look and condition of this fine bronze bust.
