ANTIQUE NUMBER SA742331: French Bronze Panther By C. Masson

French Bronze Panther By C. Masson

£1,800    $2,314    €2,078
This powerful sculpture, signed by the French animalier artist C. Masson, offers a slightly different take on the more usual sleek panther theme.
 
The animal's rippling muscles are clearly highlighted to great effect as he slowly moves forward whilst almost hugging the ground beneath him.
 
Cast on bronze and mounted on a rough-hewn granite base with an overall length of 42 cms., the compact size being accentuated by the animal's low posture.
 
Clovis-Edmond Masson (1838-1913) regularly exhibited at the Paris Salon. He studied under Antoine-Louis Barye who is still regarded as the foremost sculptor of the French animalier school.
 
This sculpture dates from circa 1900.
