Bronze Floor Standing Candelabrum after a Model by Clodion, circa 1880

About

A very fine gilt and patinated bronze floor standing candelabrum, after a model by Clodion. French, circa 1880. Claude Michael Clodion, (1738-1814), was the son-in-law of sculptor Augustin Pajou; he trained in Paris in the workshops of Lambert Sigisbert Adam, his maternal uncle and Jean-Baptiste Pigalle, the most successful sculptor of the time. After winning the Prix de Rome, he moved to Italy, sharing a studio with Jean-Antoine Houdon and studying Antique, Renaissance, and Baroque sculpture. In 1771 Clodion returned to Paris, where he continued to produce mostly in terracotta. He also worked with his brothers in other media, decorating objects such as candelabra, clocks, and vases. Drawing primarily from pagan antiquity, he created light-hearted terracotta sculptures that epitomized the Rococo style. Late in his life, when neoclassical works were more popular, Clodion adjusted his style and worked on major public monuments in Paris.
