French, 1858-1907

"Bust of Vercingetorix"

Patinated bronze | Signed in base "LAPORTE"

Item # 110TQH22P 

A fine depiction of the Gaul warrior Vercingetorix cast after a model by Emile Laporte, the bust is an interesting development over his model Pro Patria and captures the fierce resolve of the man in exquisite detail. The surface captures a wonderful texture directly from the mold and is further enhanced by cold-tooling at the foundry with a lightly hammered texture applied to the mustache, hair and face; it is finished in a medium-brown patina with traces of amber and overall hues of a rich red undertone.

Measurements: 15 1/8" H x 10" W (total width; 4 5/16" W at base) x 3 3/4" D (base)

Condition Report:
Wings on the helmet with patina touchups evident when closely examination under magnification. Minor surface wear. Cleaned and sealed in wax, a fine presentation.
