|Description: We offer a figural bronze of Bacchus by Eutrope Bouret. It is 10 ⅜” high, 8 ⅜” wide and 3 ⅝” deep. Bacchus sits gracefully hunched on a column, loosely grasping a shallow goblet with his tambourine leaning behind him. His draped robes and crown of grape vines are formed with particular grace and detail. Engraved at the base “Bourret sculp”, the misspelling is likely a foundry error, perhaps they were thinking of the famous clock maker Noël Bourret. Item #DA00162.
Eutrope Bouret (1833-1906) was a student of Louis Buhot. He exhibited at the Salon in Paris from 1875-1903.
Condition: There is a half inch scuff on the back shoulder, and some unevenness to the patina, otherwise good condition.
