“Chien Epagneul Francais” Bronze Sculpture by Christophe Fratin

$2,950

About

A very fine model of a French Spaniel, the quality of the casting is noteworthy with an exquisitely finished surface and fine chiseled detail throughout. Typical of Fratin's work, the model is beautifully textured with a great sense of movement and the touch of impressionism evident in most of his work, despite predating the Modernism movement by nearly a century. The model is very faintly stamped along the front edge "EPAGNEUL" and is signed also faintly in the front right corner "FRATIN" with his standard reversed N. This is an exceedingly rare cast on the open market. Literature and further reading: Animals in Bronze, Christopher Payne, 2002, p. 228, f.
