"14TH SIECLE ESCHOLIER" AFTER MODEL BY EMILE PICAULT
Signed in base E. Picault, brass title plaque; circa early 20th century
Item # 902KQW27P 


A well known model by Picault, it is part of a series of figures he sought to represent from the Middle Ages, this capturing a young Scholar carrying his lantern (missing) in one hand and a thick tome under arm.  

The intensity of his expression and firm set jaw show a certain determination in this figure.  The quality of chiseling and chasing evident throughout is of the highest grade, the bronze being finished in a complex red-oxide and brown chemical patination.  

We have cleaned and polished the bronze and it remains in exquisite original condition other than the missing lantern.  It is a very fine acquisition for any serious collector of Picault's work and is offered at a very good price in light of the lantern absence.
