Item Details
Description
  • Item: Group of Two Goddesses in the Neoclassical Style
  • Attributed to Jean-Baptiste Auguste Clesinger
  • Origin: France
  • Date: ca. 1875
  • Materials: Bronze
  • Size: 14.5 inches high x 26.5 inches wide x 9 inches deep

    Jean-Baptiste Auguste Clesinger, known as Auguste Clesinger (1814 - 1883) was a 19th-century famous French sculptor and painter - first exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1843 with a bust of viconte Jules de Valdahon, and last exhibited there in 1864. At the 1847 Salon, he created a sensation with his sculpture "Woman bitten by a serpent", produced from life-casts from his model Apollonie Sabatier (the pose being particularly suitable for such a method), thus reinforcing the scandal with an erotic dimension. Apollonie Sabatier was a solonniere and the mistress of Chrles Baudelaire and others. Clesinger died in Paris in 1883, and buried in the Pierre Lachaise Cemetery.
