'La Poesie' by Bareau
Large Art Nouveau bronze by the French artist Georges-Marie-Valentin Bareau (1866 - 1931). Her title is La Poesie (Poetry). She sits holding a scroll, obviously writing poetry but the quill may not be original to the piece. A top quality bronze by a top artist with fine detailing. Signed Georges Bareau and stamped with the foundry name F. Barbedienne Fondeur. In excellent condition. It measures 19.5 inches (49.5cm) high, base measures 7.5 inches square. In 2008 this same statue sold for £6000 in Sotheby's.

Ref: B270 . . . £3,995

Large Trinkende by Seifert
This is a larger version of Trinkende or Drinker (I also have the smaller one with a gold patina). It was made by the German artist V. Seifert and signed to the bronze base socle, and also marked with the foundry mark - Bronze V F Steinbach. She has a dark green-black patina and measures 17 inches high (43cm). This statue appears in the Berman bronzes books. Condition is very good with a chip to the edge of the marble base.

Nouveau Bronze Nude by Henri Huppe
Patinated bronze figure modelled as a woman walking on clouds holding a star in her hand, on marble plinth, signed in the bronze H.Huppe. She measures a total height of 22 inches (55.9cm). Condition is very good. Henri Huppe exhibited figures at the Salon Paris from 1874.

Ref: B157 . . . £1,895

Jewelled Bronze Nouveau Bust
A pretty bronze bust - signed F. Gual - although indistinct. The lady has a headband with blue, red and green coloured stones inset into the bronze, and they are repeated around the yolk of her dress. She is mounted on a dark brown shaped bronze base, and to the front of the base there is a bunch of Iris's and Bull rushes. I would date this bust at about the turn of the century to 1910 and she measures approx. 6.5 inches high and the base is about 5.5 inches by 3.5 inches. Condition is excellent apart from the tip of her nose which is a little flat - possibly having suffered a knock to the end. Please email me for close-ups.

Bronze Diane The Huntress by Kolzoff
A wonderful art nouveau period bronze - a signed piece by Serge Kolzoff. See my Information on Artists page for more details about Kolzoff. This lovely figure measures 13 inches high and the quality is exceptional. She carries a bow and arrows in a sash attached to her belt around her hips, in very classical pose. Condition is excellent with only a few minor age related patina spots due to the fact that she's about 100 years old. Email me for more pics.
