Neoclassical Allegorical Patinated Gesso Cherubs Group Sculpture
This delightful gesso carved group of cherubs dates from circa 1900 and measures an impressive 34" tall, 24" wide and 16" deep. Depicted is a cherub spilling water from an urn with another cherub drinking from a shell. Its design and exceptional construction suggest it comes from the studio of a master, such as Henri Dasson of Paris. There are no hallmarks. It features a faux marble giltwood pedestal. Condition is good. There are cracks and losses noticeable at the base of the gesso in the rear. Restoration services are available prior to shipment.
