Late 19th Large Bronze Sculpture “diane The Huntress” Signed Madrassi Paris


Large bronze sculpture with brown patina “Diane the huntress” signed MADRASSI PARIS, end of the 19th century.
The goddess is represented sitting, raising one hand to her eyes, as if to protect them from the sun and looking into the distance, while her dog rests its head on her leg waiting for her gesture. The quiver is at his feet because he uses the bow as a point of support. The sculptor wanted to draw attention to this unusual and complicated position, with the body twisting in a seated position but capable of giving a precise idea of the movement and the moment when the huntress, although giving in to fatigue, feverishly tries to spot the prey.
