Beautiful Bronze Sculpture with Brown Patina signed Coustou (1677-1746) representing one of the Horses of Marly retained by his Groom.
Originally, this Carrara Marble Sculpture, made between 1740 and 1745, adorned the drinking troughs of the Château de Marly.
Now on display at the Louvre Museum, this work features a Prancing and Fiery Horse grappling with his Groom, his body tensed by effort.
The Stallion, with a tousled mane and dilated nostrils, struggles to escape the grip of Man, a young Native American slave, simply dressed in a knotted loincloth. He struggles to control the animal by holding it back by its reins. The Equine struggles with fury in a heated fight.
The Sculptor vitally renders this confrontation and we will particularly note the Strength of the Expression of Movements.
Imbued with Realism and Strength, this Work signed Coustou will attract you with its Singularity and Noble Allure.
