About

Originally exhibited in plaster at the Salon of 1857 (no. 3102), it was again exhibited at the Salon of 1861 (no. 3616) in marble with the title L'Art Étrusque. It was acquired by the French government for 7,000 francs and was subsequently placed in the Museum of Avignon. The present model was sand-cast after the original for the retail market during Simyan's lifetime, probably circa 1870, the cold-stamped "A.D / DELAFONTAINE" surmounted by a star noting its execution by the renowned foundry of Auguste Delafontaine. The model is finished in a dark and light brown chemical patination. Artist Listings & Bibliography: Dictionnaire des Sculpteurs de L'École Française, Vol. IV, Stanislas Lami, 1970, p. 262-263 E.
