Bronze sculpture with brown patina depicting Bacchante accompanied by two fauns.
Inspired by the work "La Bacchante au petit faun" produced by Jean-Joseph Foucou (1739-1815) in 1777, this Bronze was attributed to Clodion (1738-1814) during its production, hence the inscription on the plinth "Bacchante by Clodion - Original Louvre Museum". This is a Barbedienne cast also bearing the round stamp "A. Colas mechanical reproduction".
Bacchante, priestess of Bacchus God of drunkenness, is represented with two small fauns. These two half-human, half-goat mythological creatures surround the young woman. The one on his right shoulder, hidden face holding a bunch of grapes is dressed in a garland of grape leaves. The other, near his left leg, carries a gourd and a stick.
Bacchante is depicted naked and sensual, a light veil surrounding her hips. She looks with amusement at the little Faun sitting on her shoulder which she holds with her hands.
Charming and Sensual, this sculpture is an ode to youth and celebration.
Period: 2nd half of the 19th century.
