This stunning large bronze study depicts the famous sixteenth century French poet Joachim de Ballay who was working in the sixteenth century and died in Paris in 1560.
This fine quality bronze study was sculpted by the highly regarded French artist Leofanti Adolphe, circa 1870. It showed the handsome bearded poet standing whilst wearing fine clothes from this medieval period while holding a leather bound book in one hand and another resting at his feet.
Fully signed and titled on the rectangular base. This large bronze study has a superb mid brown colour with soft gilt highlights, richly patinated and in very good original condition. This impressive bronze would be an ideal piece for a library or study.
French, circa 1870
