Cartier Bronze Lion*
An impressive bronze study of a watchful lion standing on a naturalistic rocky mound, sculpted by the Marseilles born animalier Thomas-François Cartier (1879-1943).
This artist, who was a gold medal winner at the 1927 Salon des Artistes Français, modelled many lions and this is considered to be one of his best. Good detail here with the animal looking particularly strong and defiant, and with a lovely bronze patina.
Signed T. Cartier on the base and a good size at approximately 55 cm wide and 44 cm high.
