PIERRE JULES CAVELIER (FRENCH, 1814-94) BRONZE SCULPTURE OF A SLEEPING WOMAN "Penelope", cast by F. Barbedienne Fondeur, sealed verso "504 J. Cavelier" with A. Collas reduction seal.
This is a beautiful antique bronze sculpture by Pierre Jules Cavelier, originally exhibited at Salon in 1842 as Femme Grecque Edormie in plaster, was later exhibited in 1849 as a marble sculpture under the title of Penelope. It was cast almost exclusively by the foundry of Ferdinand Barbedienne and is the only Cavelier sculpture to appear in their 1886 catalog in five reductions after the original. The original marble sculpture by Cavalier was considered a great triumph winning him a first class medal and medal of honour at the 1849 Salon and established him as one of the great modern sculptors of the time. This cast is La reduction no. 4, originally offered at 200 francs with a height of 25 cm.
Weights 3.3kg
