Stunning Bronze Sculpture Classical Lady Two Cherubs
For weekly notifications of new arrivals in your categories of interest please click HERE.
This is a lovely classical bronze sculpture of a lady with two cherubs. She is depicted leaning against a fence rail and has turned her head to hear something the cherub on her right is saying as he perches on the fence rail beside her. The other cherub is hovering behind her left shoulder and appears to be trying to attract her attention with his left hand reaching upwards.
The detailing of her classical garb, which shows wonderfully draped folds with two clasps at her shoulder is delicate and distinctly gives the impression of a very fine linen or chiffon as her legs show through. There is a lovely sense of movement and one can almost hear the sound of the fluttering wings of the cherubs as they hover beside the woman.
Dating from the late 20th century and mounted on a marble base, this bronze sculpture of a lady with two cherubs is in excellent condition as can be seen from the photographs in the gallery of images we have provided for this piece.

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.
