19th Century French Bronze Figure of Orpheus

About

After Albert Ernest Carrier Belluse (French 1824-1887) "Bronze Figure of Orpheus" circa 1880 Cast bronze Measures: 17" x 20" x 8" inches Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse was one of the most important and innovative sculptors of 19th-century France. During his long career, Carrier-Belleuse was responsible for important public monuments, as well as creating decorative sculpture for a diverse clientele. One of his major contributions to sculpture is the introduction of 19th-century technology in his workshop to efficiently reproduce his models for an eager market. This way his terracotta and marble models, many of which represent playful mythological subjects and beautiful women, could be dispersed widely. Carrier-Belleuse’s prolific workshop also became an important training ground for younger sculptors, notably Auguste Rodin, who acted as the master’s assistant between 1864 and 1870.
