Bronze study “David avant le Combat” by the noted French artist and sculptor Antonin Mercié (1845-1916).
This is the larger of the two versions of this statue depicting the biblical young David ready and waiting for his contest with the giant Philistine warrior Goliath to begin. He clutches a stone in his right hand while his sling rests at his feet.
Patinated in a rich dark brown, this fine sculpture dates from the 1890’s although it was first displayed in France in 1876. Also shown at the Exposition Universelle of 1878.
An old edition, signed by the artist and marked with the founder F. Barbedienne, Paris. Approximately 80 cm high.
