This is a magnificent large antique French bronze lamp depicting the female nude 'Sunset', by the renowned Parisian sculptor, Edouard Drout (1859-1945), Circa 1890 in date.
This striking lamp depicts the excellently executed patinated bronze female nude figure of 'Sunset' who is standing tall graciously with her arms stretched out, slightly bending backwards with her beautiful head turning left, her eyes candidly closed, and the splendid long hair flowing around. She is holding a distinctive flaming glass torch over her head - hence, representing the golden light seen in a sunset. As a Goddess, she stands divinely above the sun, which is also exquisitely captured with its rays spreading - immortalising the moment when evening commences.
It stands on a splendid rouge marble base of unusual and desirable shaped square form.
It bears the artist's signature 'E. Drout' at the back.
This high-quality bronze figure was produced by using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method.
The craftsmanship is second to none throughout all aspects of this imposing bronze lamp which is sure to add an unparalleled touch of elegance to your home.
The pedestal shown in the photographs is not included in the price but is available if required.
In excellent condition, the lamp having been rewired, please see photos for confirmation of condition.
