Vassily Yakovlevich Grachev
was a Russian 19th Century sculptor, 1831-1905. His sculptures perfectly capture the realistic sense of movement and action for which the sculptor was famous. Hisworks have been offered at auction houses such as Christie's and Sotherby's multiple times. The record price for a "Troika" themed sculpture is $57,940 at Christie's in 2010.
Lost Wax Method
sometimes called by the French name of cire perdue or the Latin, cera perduta is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artists sculpture.
In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.
