Wild Bear Catching Fish Bronze Sculpture After Milo
For weekly notifications of new arrivals in your categories of interest please click HERE.
A bronze statue of a wild bear, recast from the artist’s original depicting the magnificent bear in the act of catching a fish. This is an interesting and lifelike bronze sculpture of a wild grizzly bear with a fish in his mouth.
This bronze statue dates from the latter quarter of the 20th century.
The lost wax method of casting these bronzes is very good at retaining a high level of detail and that is certainly the case here. A close inspection will reveal the quality of the modelling to the creature's head and body and the wonderful rendition of its fur. The unfortunate fish is also nicely modelled and adds a note of natural reality to the piece.
The bronze bear is set upon an attractive marble base and bears a replica signature of Milo. A closer look at the pictures will convince you that we are being very straightforward when we describe it as being in excellent condition and on sale at a very reasonable price.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)
was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.
While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.
Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.
The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).
is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.
The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.
It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
