19th Italian Venus Crouching Marble Sculpture


Figure in white Carrara marble representing Venus crouching after the antique, Italy, 19th century.

This sculpture belongs to the “Venus Pudica” type, generally represented standing. It is the goddess’s gesture of modesty that inspired the name of this emblematic break. She leaves the viewer the leisure to admire her beauty, barely veiled with a graceful gesture … squats the right knee on a rock and bends the left leg behind which is a water jug, the sensual body shows curves Voluptuous in a subtle twist effect surrounded by her delicately lascivious arms, the chest is carefully modeled and three locks of wavy hair fall down the back …

The figure of this Venus is known from the antique, taken from the 17th century by the French sculptor Antoine Coysevox.

It is a fascinating model due to the difficulty of sculpting the human body in such a complex twisting motion.
