Description

This is a very striking and high quality early 20th century bronze sculpture.

Thomas Francois Cartier (French born 1879-1943) is best known for his variety of big cat bronze sculptures. This casting is in spelter (a white metal frequently used for sculpture casting in the first quarter of the 20th century), which has been patinated to give a bronze appearance, the base also painted to give a naturalistic rocky appearance. The metal base is signed T Cartier in the cast. The whole sculpture is mounted on a black slate plinth.

Bronze sculptures by Cartier realise very high prices, but this casting would also be from the model by Cartier, and so now, as when it was made, the same sculpture is obtainable for a lower price. The style of mounting points to an early 20th century date.


Measurements

Slate base 45 cm long, sculpture 34 cm long, base and sculpture stands 24 cm high.
