French Courting Couple Bronze Sculpture
This wonderful French bronze takes the form of a young couple with their arm’s around each other in a carefree embrace. Depicted in the Neoclassical style both figures are fashioned in flowing garments and portrayed with classically styled features. The sinuous material of their clothes drapes gracefully around their bodies, accentuating both forms in amazing realism. The sculpture depicts the couple in the middle of gathering wheat discernible from the bundles of grain at their feet and in the young man’s arms. The work displays incredible skill and detail, most difficult to achieve in the cast bronze medium.
