Aime Millet Bronze Nude of Young Woman "The Disconsolate Ariadne"



Fine bronze of "The Disconsolate Ariadne” signed by Aime Millet, (1819-1891). Semi clad woman on one knee with her head in her hands leaning against a rocky outcrop. Good dark brown patination in excellent condition. Aime Millet (b Paris, 28 sept 1819; d Paris, 14 Jan 1891). French sculptor. Son of a miniature painter, he studied at the petite ecole (ecole gratuite de dessin) and the ecole des Beaux Arts, Paris, where he was a student of David d’Angers. He moved in romantic circles both during and after his student years and became a close friend of the poet Gérard de Nerval. Belated success came in 1857 when his statue of Ariadne (marble version, New York, met.) won a first-class medal at the salon. Millet gained a reputation for colossal statuary with his Vercingetorix, erected in 1865 on the site of the battle of Alesia, alise-sainte-reine, côte d’or. Commissioned by Napoleon III. Good size, set on an oval base.
