Introducing the captivating "Rising Day," an allegorical bronze sculpture created by the talented Louis-Simon Boizot (1743–1809). This remarkable piece, with its rich dark brown patina, showcases the artist's mastery and vision. The sculpture bears the signature "Boizot" on its base, a testament to the artist's value. Originally designed as a fountain figure for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco, "Rising Day" embodies timeless elegance. Boizot's artistic expertise is evident as he skillfully captures the essence of this allegorical subject. The sculpture portrays a graceful figure with wings, symbolizing the waning hours of daylight as the sun ascends. The piece exudes a lyrical classical style, characterized by flowing Greco-Roman attire and a unique fluidity that anticipates the art deco movement. "Rising Day" stands as a testament to Boizot's ability to infuse sculptures with both aesthetic beauty and profound meaning. It serves as a bridge between classical inspiration and evolving modern styles. Its inclusion in esteemed collections such as The Cleveland Museum of Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum reflects its enduring appeal and historical significance.
