Italian 19th Century Carrara Marble Sculpture Going for a Swim by Emilio Fiaschi

$142,500

About

An very fine Italian 19th century Carrara marble sculpture depicting a young beauty going for a Swim standing on the steps of a dock, raised on its original carved green marble pedestal, by Emilio Fiaschi (Italian, 1858-1941). The intricately carved marble figure of the young beauty wearing a laced bathing suit, stepping down from old and worn dock to test the temperature of the water with her toes, embodies a moment in time in the late 19th century when women began wearing more revealing and elegant swimwear. Fiaschi's artful and sensual depiction of the girl's charming pose and delightful smile as she anticipates the joy of going for a swim makes this one of his finest works. Signed: E. Fiaschi, Florence, circa 1890. Measures: Sculpture height: 45 3/4 inches (116.2 cm) Sculpture depth: 25 inches (63.5 cm) Sculpture width: 17 inches (43.2 cm) Pedestal height: 31 1/2 inches (80 cm) Overall height: 77 1/4 inches (196.2 cm) The widest and deepest measurement are the pedestal hexagonal bottom base which measures: 30 inches by 30 inches (76.2 cm by 76.2 cm).
