Bronze Sculpture Seated Woman by Moreau, after James Pradier

About

Bronze statue with gold colored patination featuring a seated classical lady after James Pradier (1790-1852). She is set on an oval Breche d’Alep marble base. This bronze is inspired by Sappho, a marble statue realized by Pradier in 1852, which is currently conserved at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. Signed: Moreau. Well-known and appreciated from 1820, Pradier received commissions from all the regimes: the Restoration and the July Monarchy asked him to produce major works, in particular for the House of Deputies in 1830, for the Place de la Concorde in 1836 and the pediment of the Luxembourg Palace in 1840. The female figure was the central theme in his work. However his style cannot be reduced to the introduction of pleasant sensuality into an antique repertoire; the painfully restrained, palpitating drama of Sappho (1852) makes that clear. Certainly the figure combines the nobility of marble and the dignity of the subject but the clarity of the construction, the wildness of the gesture, the meditative intensity of expression suddenly give it a presence and intense interiority: the antique poetess Sappho, in despair, is thinking of suicide. Sappho was on display at the Salon in 1852 when the sculptor died suddenly; she was then covered with a black veil and the artist was posthumously awarded the medal of honour. Bibliography: Musée d'Orsay online catalog, circa 1870. Dimensions: W 13 in, D 6.3in, H 11in. Dimensions: L 33cm, P 16cm, H 28cm.
