Unique Cire Perdue Gilt Bronze Sculpture of Roses by Louis Ernest Barrias

$9,500

About the Item

A unique Cire Perdue gilt bronze sculpture of roses by Louis Ernest Barrias. The singular lost wax cast of a still life of roses is mounted on a rosewood plinth. Signed in the plinth "P. Bingen Cire Perdue" and "épreuve unique". Sotheby's offered a similar example in their 19th and 20th century sculpture sale on July 12, 2017. Lot 87. These sculptures seem to be variations on a theme that Barrias played with for a short period of time - each being unique and by definition the direct result of the artist's hand. Measures: Length ca. 8 1/8 in.
