Bronze Figure of Venus, Souvenir of the Grand Tour

About

This is an exceptionally fine example of superb casting. These were available to those who toured Europe in the late 19th century and wanted n example of a famous sculpture for their home. This such statues are called "Souvenirs of the Grand Tour", or "After the Antique". Either category is acceptable. We have sold many such bronzes over the years. This does bear the foundry maker's name, A. Vetu. As for the original sculptor, no one can say. It is like asking who made the Venus de Milo.
