    Horse of Marly in bronze with original medal patina
    Antique cast from the 19th century
    The Horses of Marly are two sculpted groups representing rearing horses and their grooms in Carrara marble. They were commissioned in 1739 by Louis XV to the sculptor Guillaume COUSTOU (1677-1746) to decorate the entrance to the park of the Château de Marly. The models were chosen by the king in 1743 and installed in Marly in 1745.
    In 1794 they were transferred to the Place de la Concorde and replaced in 1984 by copies in reconstituted marble made by Michel Bourbon.
    The originals are kept in the Louvre Museum.
