“Escholier, 14th Siècle” Antique French Bronze Sculpture by Emile Picault

About

A well known model by Picault, it is part of a series of figures he sought to represent from the Middle Ages, this capturing a young Scholar carrying his lantern (missing) in one hand and a thick tome under arm. The intensity of his expression and firm set jaw show a certain determination in this figure. The quality of chiseling and chasing evident throughout is of the highest grade, the bronze being finished in a complex red-oxide and brown chemical patination. We have cleaned and polished the bronze and it remains in exquisite original condition other than the missing lantern. It is a very fine acquisition for any serious collector of Picault's work and is offered at a very good price in light of the lantern absence. Literature and Further Reading: E.
