Diana The Huntress Bronze Bust After Georges van der Straeten (1856-1928)
Our beautiful bronze bust of Diana the Huntress after the original model by Georges van der Straeten (1856-1928) was cast in Paris by Societe des Bronzes de Paris and measures 23.25 in (59 cm) in height.
The artist was born in Ghent, Belgium, and studied with Jef Lambeaux (1852-1908). In the early 1880s he moved to Paris where he exhibited at the salon from 1885 through 1912. He won numerous medals, including a silver at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1900. His works are often compared to those of the Italian artist, Emmanuel Villanis (1858-1914). In addition to the Societe des Bronzes, Pinedo and Friedrich Goldscheider reproduced his works.
