Bronze Sculpture of Young Henri IV by Bosio, France, 19th Century

About

A charming 19th century, French bronze of Henry IV of France as a young man, elegantly dressed and holding his sword, signed Bosio. Fine quality after Baron Francois Joseph Bosio (1768-1845). Henry IV of France, often known as the 'good King', was born in 1553 and died in 1610, he became king of Navarre in 1572 after the death of his mother. This bronze is in a very good condition and has a lovely patina. It is a reduction cast by the famous foundry Barbedienne, founded in 1838 in Paris. The foundry was set up in 1838 by Ferdinand Barbedienne and Achille Collas, that invented a machine to create smaller bronze figures from statues of Greek & Roman origin in particular. They produced many fine pieces over the years and worked with many famous artists as the Barye and Rodin. About Baron Franc¸ois Joseph Bosio: (19 March 1768-29 July 1845) was a French sculptor who achieved distinction in the first quarter of the 19th century with his work for Napoleon and for the restored French monarchy. He was the favorite sculptor of King Louis XVIII. Bosio was given a commission for 2 marble statues: one for the king's residence ( in Cha^teau de Versailles), the other for the Cha^teau de Pau where he was born. The silver statue in the Louvre was taken (unfinished) to Louis XVIII's study in 1824. Bosio had the great privilege of making 12 bronze casts of it.
