Etienne Henri Dumaige ‘French, 1830-88’ Antique Bronze Sculpture Bust "Daphnis"

About

This powerful example of romantic realism depicts a young female musician wrapped in an animal skin garment with a woodwind syrinx tucked in the knotting. She looks off into the distance, her head covered in a woven cap with her hair just barely falling on her uncovered shoulder. The crisp chiselling is excellent, the skin of the subject finished with perfect accuracy. The integral socle is titled in relief Daphnis and is signed along the proper left edge H. DUMAIGE. Literature: E. Benezit Dictionary of Artists, Vol. IV, Gründ, 2006, p. 1313-1314; noting the Philadelphia sale of a model of Daphnis in 17 1/2” height for $4,000 USD; Bronzes of the 19th century, P. Kjellberg, 1994, p. 302 Measurements: 10 1/2” W x 6” D x 17 1/2” H Condition report: Original patina with light wear to relief and minor trace verdigris oxidization. Overall excellent condition.
