Small Bronze Sculpture of 'Ariadne Riding a Panther' after Dannecker

About

Small bronze sculpture of of 'Ariadne Riding a Panther' after a masterpiece by Johann Heinrich von Dannecker (1758-1841). The original Marble sculpture is perhaps one of the best-known German sculptures of the 19th century (exhibited at Liebighaus, Frankfurt). Dannecker shows Ariadne riding, lying in divine nakedness on one of Dionysius' panthers. Overall, the pose creates a contour of extended repose, embracing the whole sculpture. The bronze is inscribed on the rectangular base with 'Dannecker'. Reproductions were popular in the second half of the 19th century, ours is of a refined quality.
