This exquisite bronze sculpture captures a beautiful woman descending a forested mountainside to a clearing where a stream meanders around water-polished rocks. Struggling to keep her bundle of wildflowers in a bouquet, she gathers the hem of her skirt with both hands to cross without getting wet. The sculpture's realistic intentions and natural essence combine to create a work of art that exudes vitality and grace. Cast using the ancient lost-wax method and finished with a brown patina for preservation, this piece is a timeless testament to the artist's skill and dedication. Mounted on a variegated black marble base, the sculpture is signed by the renowned artist A. Moreau. Auguste Moreau (French, 1834 - 1917) was born in Dijon and studied under Mathurin Moreau. Known for his detailed and lifelike sculptures, Auguste Moreau specialized in figures, statuettes, and groups, primarily in marble. He made his debut at the 1861 Salon in Paris and continued to contribute to the Salon des Artistes Français as a member of the Société des Artistes Français until 1910. This sculpture not only showcases the beauty and craftsmanship typical of Moreau's work but also serves as a piece of art history, reflecting the artistic traditions of 19th-century France. The combination of the woman's graceful form, the natural setting, and the expert craftsmanship makes this sculpture a stunning addition to any art collection, embodying the timeless beauty and elegance of classical sculpture.
