French Louis XIV General Henri de la Tour d'Auvergne Bust Sculpture After Derbais
This fine faux marble plaster bust of Henri de la Tour d'Auvergne, Vicomte de Turenne, after the original marble bust by Jérome Derbais, measures 30.5" tall, 27.5" wide and 12" deep, and dates from the first quarter of the 20th century. Condition is good. There are scratches, abrasions and surface dirt, and cracks, consistent with age. There are restorations to chip losses to the sides/edges of the pedestal. The work is unsigned and we have no details on early provenance. Our price is firm. Often called simply Turenne (1611-1675), Henri was the most illustrious member of the La Tour d'Auvergne family. He achieved military fame and became a Marshal of France under King Louis XIV, one of only six generals who have achieved such rank in the history of the republic. The original bust by Jérôme Derbais (1645-1712) resides in the collection of the Musée Condé in the château de Chantilly in Chantilly, Oise, north of Paris.
