Late 19th Century Art Nouveau Bronze “Hirondelles” by Mathurin Moreau

About

A very fine late 19th century bronze study of an Art Nouveau beauty seated upon a rocky outcrop with a harp in one hand and the other raised above her head with a small bird perched on it, the bronze with excellent hand finished detail and rich colour. Raised on a rotating base, signed Math Moreau, stamped and inscribed. Mathurin Moreau (French, 1822 ~ 1912) Mathurin came from a distinguished family of artists, studying initially under his father, Jean Baptiste Moreau, before he enrolled at the École des Beaux Arts in 1841, where he was a pupil of Ramey and Dumont. He first exhibited in the 1848 Salon receiving a medal of honour from the Salon in 1897. He was made Mayor of the XIXe arrondissement, Paris, and in 1912 had a street named in his honour. He had many public commissions and his statues and monuments are to be found in many parts of Paris.
