EUGENE AIZELIN (FRENCH, 1821-1902) BRONZE BUST OF A WOMAN WITH TIARA
Cast by F. Barbedienne, signed in shoulder E. Aizelin 1870, signed in back F. Barbedienne Fondeurs
Item # 807XIP14Q


A very fine bronze bust of a woman with a tiara by Eugene Aizelin, the work is a rare example that is infrequently found on the market in bronze.  The present cast has Barbedienne’s distinct presentation of gilding against the dark patina, this a dense polished and shining surface protected with beeswax.  The truncated shoulders are signed "E Aizelin 1880” and the block script for F. Barbedienne Fondeurs is under the back of the shoulders.
