In very good condition - 43 cm
A beautiful bronze sculpture group depicting the Gallic King Vercingetorix* and his son. Signed "Emile Laporte", the French artist Emile Laporte (1858-1907), and with the foundry stamp of Siot-Decauville.
France, late 19th century.
*Vercingetorix (ca 82-46 BC) was a Gallic King from Auvergne, who was head of the Gallic Revolt against the Romans in 53-52 BC (Wikipedia).
A variant of this sculpture is depicted in the following standard works on sculpture:
- Harold Berman, Bronze Sculptors & Founders 1800-1930, volume III, page 705
- Pierre Kjellberg, Bronzes of the 19th century, page 407.
With dark patina, in very good condition.
Presumably the sculpture of the son is missing an attribute in his left hand, but the axe in his right hand is still present.
Size: 43 x 30 x 22 cm.
Weight: approx. 8 kg.
Will be sent by registered mail.
