In good general condition - 60 cm

A beautiful robust scene of a half-naked sower with a beautiful patina.
The sculpture carries the title 'Fac et Spera’ (Do and Hope).
The powerful manly way of demeanour gives the sculpture a tough look.
The sculpture is signed somewhat indistinguishably on the base, but based on the scene it can probably be attributed to Henri Désiré Gauquié (1858-1927).
It has a height of 60 cm.
Picking up preferred, can also be sent in consultation.
