An Ecstatic Bacchanalian figure in alabaster by Jef Lambeaux, early 20th century



A stunning, sensual and timeless bust of a reveller of Dionysus. Of good scale proportion, beautifully hand carved out of alabaster and now showing an incredible aged patination. Jef Lambeaux (1852-1908) was a leading Belgian figurative sculptor of the Belgian realist school of the late 19th century. He studied at the Antwerp Academy of Fine Arts and was a pupil of Jean Geefs. He was part of a group of young artists, the 'Van Beers clique', led by Jan van Beers. His best known work is the Temple of Human Passions, a colossol marble bas-relief. Signed Jef Lambeaux on the left shoulder.
