DetailsAn exquisite study of a pensive-looking muse. Note the liquid quality of her tunic and the elegant floral design of her hair accessories. It is signed 'Red'n Sauvage'. Frédéric Sauvage (1786-1857), like his contemporary Achille Collas, who was to partner with the Barbedienne foundry in Paris, devised a reduction technique, a 'réducteur' allowing for the accurate reproduction of famous sculptures in multiple sizes. French, second half of the 19th century. H: 16"/40cm.
