Description

A very good example of this very well cast bronze of a golden pheasant cock, also known as a Chinese pheasant, which is modelled strutting with an attentive ear to some distraction which gives him a quizzical look. A great deal of attention has been given to both the feathering and the detail on the base. The canted corners of the bronze base are mirrored in the Verde Antico marble base.
Henri Emile Adrien Trodoux (1815-1881) was born to French parents in St Petersburgh where he studied at the College of Fine Arts. He is known for his work depicting animals in naturalistic settings. Trodoux exhibited at the Paris Salon between 1874 and 1876.
Signed Trodoux to the front of the bronze base. We date this to circa 1875.
Measuring some 28cms from the front of the marble base to its tail and having a maximum height of 18.8cms including the marble base which has a depth of some 9.8cms.
The patination is generally rubbed and there is a very well executed old repair to the front back corner of the marble base which also has a couple of very minor nibbles to extremities.
